German police detained 71 neo-Nazis during a march Saturday to honor Hitler deputy Rudolf Hess. The march drew 2,600 neo-Nazis to Wunsiedel, the Bavarian town where Hess was buried after his 1987 suicide, The Associated Press reported. Hess hanged himself at age 93 after spending nearly 41 years in the Spandau Prison in Berlin. Police at the commemorative march arrested demonstrators for displaying outlawed Nazi symbols and carrying weapons such as knives, tear gas and baseball bats. A counter-demonstration at the site drew about 400 people.
