An armed Nazi anti-Semitic sabotage and spy group was uncovered yesterday by Stockholm police who arrested five leaders, including Bjoern Lundahl, Sweden’s top Nazi. Two arms caches also were found.

Police said that Lundahl allegedly spied for the Egyptian Embassy here, submitting information on the Israel Embassy and data on staff lectures at the Embassy, as well as information on Zionist activities, Jewish fund-raising, immigration and emigration. The Nazi also allegedly provided biographies of Jewish and non-Jewish Zionists in Sweden.

The police said they had found a list of 100 members of the Nazi group, and said they anticipated further arrests. The leaders face six to 10 years’ imprisonment if they are convicted. The Swedish Cabinet discussed the matter yesterday. The gang operated under cover of the notorious Nazi Foundation Central Library in Stockholm, police reported.
