Members of a white nationalist group marched through downtown Boston, sparking alarm from both local residents and tourists in the area.

The men, numbering in the dozens, were wearing white masks, with some carrying flags and police shields.

CNN said video footage it obtained "shows the flags bearing the symbol of the White nationalist Patriot Front group."

Video posted on Twitter also showed the marchers.

First reports of the march came at around 12:30 p.m. Saturday, July 2.

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu reacted quickly to the incident, posting this statement on Twitter: "To the white supremacists who ran through downtown today:

"When we march, we don’t hide our faces. Your hate is as cowardly as it is disgusting, and it goes against all that Boston stands for."
