Police in the northwestern English city of Liverpool arrested 34 far-right activists after clashes with anti-fascist protesters late on Saturday, local media reported.

LONDON (Sputnik) Riot police responded to a standoff between an anti-radical Islam militant group calling itself North West Infidels and counter-protesters on the St. George’s Hall steps in central Liverpool. 

Law enforcement officials later confirmed to the Liverpool Echo that 34 men have been arrested following the disturbance, with suspicions ranging from assaulting police, breaching peace and possession of weapons. Officers recovered a number of discarded weapons at the site.
