Polish independence day march by nationalists banned in Warsaw

A Polish rally that has become a magnet for the far right has been banned by the mayor of Warsaw, days before the country marks the 100th anniversary of independence.

Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz said security must come first and Warsaw had suffered enough from "aggressive nationalism".

A year ago, 60,000 people took part in the nationalist march, amid chants of "Pure Poland, white Poland".

Some of the organisers have threatened to go ahead with the march regardless.
