Police seized metal poles, bear spray and other weapons and closed bridges and streets to try to keep the rival groups apart. They were largely successful.

Six minor injuries were reported.

More than two dozen local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, were in the city for the right-wing rally.

Portland Police said all of the city's 1,000 officers would be on duty for the gathering that was hyped on social media and elsewhere for weeks.
