Four people alleged to have links to the National Socialist Front were arrested after they started a fight at a party arranged by gay organisation RFSL in Kristianstad, southern Sweden, on Saturday night.

At least three partygoers were assaulted, according to Swedish Radio. The four - two men and two women - were arrested a short distance from the building in which the party was taking place.

A 27-year old man was detained on suspicion of serious assault. A second man, aged 22, is suspected of assault. The two women were released after questioning.

RFSL's chairman in Kristianstad has demanded a meeting about the incident with local authority and police officials, it was reported.
