Dozens are arrested as far-right protesters attack LGBT march
Police have arrested 25 people after far-right attacks on an LGBT rights march in eastern Poland.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights have become an issue in Poland ahead of a general election expected in October, with the conservative party depicting campaigners as a threat to traditional Polish values.
Videos posted on Twitter show men attacking participants in the march in Bialystok, including a woman, and shouting anti-LGBT insults. Some of the attackers were wearing football club T-shirts.
Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of the ruling PiS party, said in April that LGBT rights represented foreign values that posed "a real threat to our identity, to our nation".
