The Slovakian city of Bratislava celebrated gay pride on Saturday with a
parade, but it was violently interrupted by homophobic protesters spraying tear gas and
hurling rocks and eggs.
Parade participants claim police did not do enough to protect their safety from the extremist groups that participated in the violence. About 100 antigay protesters mocked the marchers, and police say they tried to stop those who were throwing objects at people in the parade.
