A gay couple in Madrid were attacked by a group for “Neo-Nazis” on Friday, and one of them hospitalised.

Aged 17 and 23, the couple were attacked by nine men and one woman who were all dressed in black Neo-Nazi clothing, reports the Huffington Post Spain.

They were sat on a bench in Madrid’s Temple of Debod with a friend when they were attacked. The friend was not injured in the fray.

Saying they were “afraid” to speak openly about the attack, the couple said they wanted to remain anonymous.

One of the pair was hospitalised for several hours with bruising to the neck.

Protesters last week held a gay kiss-in at a Burger King in Madrid after a gay couple were kicked out for kissing.
