Seven neo-Nazis have been charged in Stuttgart with spreading violence, displaying illegal Nazi symbols, circulating anti-Semitic propaganda and other political offenses. The Stuttgart Prosecution office said Monday that the seventh and last member of the group was arrested a few days ago while entering West Germany. The office statement said the others were arrested previously when they returned to West Germany from various European countries where they had been trying to avoid prosecution. Most of the offenses charged against members of the group were committed last year. The neo-Nazis had started to use SS-like uniforms while celebrating various events connected with alleged Nazi achievements.
