Four stabbed at KKK gathering in Southern California
Feb 28, California: At least four people were stabbed in a brawl between a small group of Ku Klux Klan (KKK) members and counter-protesters in Southern California, US police said. KKK were staging an anti-immigrant rally on Saturday.
Thirteen people, both KKK members and rival demonstrators, were arrested. One of the stabbing victims is said to be in a serious condition.
According to the police, the violence broke out when several Klan members arrived at a local park for a rally and were attacked by counter-protesters.
A Klansman who allegedly stabbed one of the demonstrators with a flag pole is among those detained, reports said.
The counter-protests had been underway for hours before the KKK members arrived, witnesses reported.
Some were seen kicking a man whose shirt read "Grand Dragon", the name of a high-ranking KKK member, reports said.
