Neo-nazis Rally in Moscow

Members of a neo-Nazi group burned Israeli and American flags during a rally Saturday in the center of Moscow.

The rally, which came amid annual May Day celebrations and attracted about 100 demonstrators, was organized by the Russian National Union, a small but militant ultra-nationalist group. Some demonstrators carried anti-Semitic signs.

Leaders of the demonstration warmed up the crowed by shouting anti-Zionist and anti-American slogans.

Police did not interfere, saying the rally did not involve large numbers, according to reports on Russian television.
