Twelve Jewish Shops in Brussels Smeared with Swastikas; Sue Neo-nazis

Complaints were filed today with city officials on behalf of twelve Jewish shop owners whose stores were smeared with swastikas by members of a neo-Nazi movement. One of the daubers was seized at the time and is now under arrest.

The complaints were lodged by Frederic Bauthier, legal adviser of the International Union of Resistance and Deportee Movements. He is also president of the Belgo-Israeli Friendship League. The neo-Nazi group involved in the smearing is the Belgian section of the National Socialist World Union.
