Swedish police on Saturday started to disperse hundreds of opponents of coronavirus restrictions who staged a protest in the capital Stockholm in defiance of a ban on large gatherings.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that police blocked a bridge in the centre of the city and said on their website they were in dialogue with organisers to persuade demonstrators to disperse.
TV images showed police shoving some protesters, while the police said one officer had been slightly injured and taken to hospital.
"Police have taken the decision to break up the non-authorised gathering which is ongoing," Stockholm police said on their website on Saturday.
