Two California Highway Patrol officers were hurt Monday during a protest outside the state Capitol involving a neo-Nazi group.

Details on the injuries were not immediately available, but they were not considered life-threatening.

A group of self-proclaimed white supremacists organized a nationwide protest Monday in an effort they call the “South Africa Project.” According to the project’s website, they want to stop the alleged “genocide of whites” in South Africa.

A group of Occupy protesters then started a counter-demonstration, according to Fox 40.

Extra CHP and Sacramento police officers were called in to separate the two groups, and at least one arrest was made.
The scene had broken up by 5 p.m., and streets in the area reopened.
