ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — A gay rights rally in St. Petersburg ended in scuffles after several dozen protesters were confronted by about 200 conservative and religious activists.

The police standing nearby waited until clashes broke out between the two groups before intervening. According to Russian news agencies, the police detained 67 people from both sides.

The scuffles started after anti-gay protesters tore a rainbow flag out of a woman’s hands.
