Three people were stabbed this morning at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Anaheim, with at least one rushed to a nearby hospital.

A melee broke out when Klan members drove into a park and were attacked by counter-protesters, an Anaheim police spokesman told the O.C. Register. Three of the counter-protesters were stabbed by white supremacists, with one in critical condition after being struck in the torso by a flag pole. A total of 13 people were arrested.

An earlier report from City News Service said around 20 people attended the white supremacist rally, with counter-protesters demonstrating nearby. Reports said Klan members were out antagonizing one Anaheim neighborhood on Martin Luther King Day as well.
