(Newser) – More than 100 people were arrested in Warsaw yesterday after Poland's Independence Day celebrations turned ugly for the second year in a row. Right-wing extremists holding a parade to rival those of left-wingers and government supporters hurled firecrackers and chunks of concrete at police in the Polish capital, Reuters reports. Police fired rubber bullets in response. At a rally before the march, extremists chanted nationalist slogans and spoke of alleged Jewish conspiracies.
