Poland charges 46 in attacks on police in marches

The charges come as Polish authorities have moved quickly to put on trial some of the 210 people arrested in Friday`s attacks.



Warsaw: Polish prosecutors have filed criminal charges against 46 people suspected of attacking police during Independence Day marches in Warsaw.

The charges on Sunday come as Polish authorities have moved quickly to put on trial some of the 210 people arrested in Friday`s attacks. Officials are taking a tough stance against violence before the Euro 2012 soccer championships next year.

The news agency PAP quoted a spokeswoman for prosecutors, Monika Lewandowska, as saying that 46 were charged for their involvement in what was some of the worst street violence in Poland in years.
Of 210 arrested, 92 were Germans, many of whom have been allowed to return home. Lewandowska said two people were convicted on Sunday after they confessed.
