Aussie cops use pepper spray to quell chaos in Melbourne

Police have used capsicum spray to break up scuffles between right-wing groups and anti-racist demonstrators in Melbourne.

The Australian Defence League and the United Patriotic Front right-wing groups were among those taking part in a Reclaim Australia rally, one of a number planned for this weekend.

They were confronted by anti-racist demonstrators, coordinated by the Coalition Against Racism and Fascism.
