Approximately 600 people gathered in Riga, Latvia, to mark the anniversary of the formation of a Latvian Nazi SS unit. In addition, more than 100 members of the Latvian National Soldiers Association commemorated the day by meeting at a military cemetery outside Riga. Last week, the group canceled its annual procession in Riga, saying international controversy could damage its country’s bid to enter the NATO military alliance in November.
