Thousands of Austrians have protested against their country’s new right-wing government with a march in Vienna.

Police in the capital said about 20,000 people attended the march on Saturday.

Some protesters carried placards reading “Never Again”. Others chanted slogans such as “Refugees should stay, drive out the Nazis”.
