Neo-nazi Mercenaries Pose Concern

German neo-Nazis who have returned home after serving as mercenaries in the war-torn former Yugoslavia have German security officials concerned about an “internal security problem.”

Some who fought alongside Croats and Bosnian Muslims have returned with weapons – including submachine guns and hand grenades – that might be used in Germany, it was report.

Some 3,000 Germans actively participate in neo-Nazi organizations, the security officials estimated.
