About a dozen members of the Ku Klux Klan faced thousands of angry protesters during a KKK rally in Manhattan. The Klan members, who appeared in their traditional hoods and robes but without masks, complained that they could not get their message across because the city had denied them a sound system. Seven protesters were arrested on a variety of charges, including one man who allegedly assaulted a Klansman prior to Saturday’s rally.
