Some 600 police officers are expected to be on duty for a neo-Nazi march in Washington planned for Saturday. The American Nationalist Party, previously known as Knights of Freedom, plans to march along Pennsylvania Avenue to Lafayette Park in front of the White House. Police are expecting about 300 people to take part in the march and about 500 to participate in counterdemonstrations, including a vigil in front of the Lincoln Memorial organized by the local chapters of the American Jewish Committee, the NAACP and other civil rights and community groups.
