Download PDF for this date

Police reported today that divers had found ammunition, swastikas and other Nazi emblems in a river near a Stockholm hotel. The police said they were investigating to determine whether the discoveries had any link with Bjoern Lundahl and his neo-Nazi group.

Lundahl was charged with high treason and armed threats against the state after a police raid last month uncovered the neo-Nazi movement. Documents were found of plans to murder all Swedish Jews. Lundahl s passport was confiscated and he was released temporarily after the charges were reduced and the public prosecutor said he needed more time to investigate the ease.
