60 injured in Montenegro during gay pride march

It isn't so much the story itself that interest me, but rather how the AP reported it in the first sentence:

Quote
Police in Montenegro fired tear gas to repel anti-gay extremists who threw rocks and firebombs at officers protecting a gay pride march Sunday, officials said.

AP isn't even bothering to hide its political biases any more.

Anyone tossing firebombs is an extremist, but most likely they are just your run of the mill anarchists looking to make trouble.  This was the perfect excuse.
