A former member of the Belgian resistance movement warned on the radio here today of increased activities by neo-Nazi groups within Belgium. Hubert Halin, a member of the Union Internationale de la Resistance et de la Deportation. said his warning was directed in particular to Belgian youth who might be fooled about the real nature of the Nazi groups hiding behind seemingly innocuous front organizations.

Mr. Halin said that among the neo-Nazi groups was the “Region Flandres Wallonie des Casques d’Acier” created a few years ago, which operates a “shooting club” called “The Black Rose.” This club meets and trains in the heart of Brussels and is trying to recruit young people., Mr. Halin said.
