San Francisco, Jun 27: Seven people were hospitalized with at least two in critical condition after a stabbing spree broke out during a neo-Nazi rally at California's state capitol building, officials said.

The white supremacist rally on Saturday was met by counter protesters, Sacramento Fire Department spokesman Chris Harvey told AFP. The fire department posted on Twitter that some of the patients had "critical trauma stab wounds."

It was unclear to which group the wounded belonged. According to The Sacramento Bee newspaper, the stabbing spree broke out between some 25 neo-Nazis who had permission to protest on the capitol's west steps and more than 150 anarchists and "anti-fascist" counterprotesters.

Emergency responders received a call to the scene just before noon (1900 GMT). The Los Angeles Times reported that a white-supremacist, anti-immigration group called the Traditionalist Worker Party staged the event. Protesters had mostly cleared the capitol lawn, with only small groups remaining as of mid-afternoon, Harvey said.
