Police say two people have been arrested for throwing rocks at officers as they tried to keep protesters from blocking a neo-Nazi march to the federal courthouse in Phoenix.

Police spokesman Sgt. Tommy Thompson says officers used tear gas to move the protesters off the street on Saturday. No serious injuries were reported.

After the group of people opposed to the neo-Nazi march were moved off the street, the group continued on to the courthouse. Members of the National Socialist Movement have marched in Phoenix against illegal immigration regularly in recent years.
