(Budapest) Dozens of protesters have clashed with police escorting a march by gays and lesbians through the center of the Hungarian capital Budapest.

The protesters pelted the marchers with eggs, bottles and rocks and clashed with police, setting fire to a police van.

Police used water cannon and tear gas to disperse the protesters at several points along a boulevard in downtown Budapest.

Today’s “Dignity March” began at one end of the boulevard, while the protesters gathered at the opposite end and at other intersections along the way.

Police tried to protect the march by setting up high metal barriers on both sides of the road
