Chinese tourists arrested for Hitler salute in Germany

Sauce for the goose…

Two Chinese tourists were arrested in Berlin for making Hitler salutes outside the German parliament on Saturday.

Criminal proceedings have been started against the middle-aged men for using symbols from a banned organisation.

The pair have been released on bail of €500 (£450; $600) each.

Germany has strict laws on hate speech and symbols linked to Hitler and the Nazis.

The men – aged 36 and 49 – could face a fine or a prison sentence of up to three years, according to police.
