Some 800 demonstrators marched in Germany to commemorate the 14th anniversary of the death of Hitler deputy Rudolf Hess. The demonstration in the Bavarian town where Hess is buried took place after a court overturned a local ruling banning the march. The higher court ruled that the march could occur as long as the marchers did not enter the cemetery where Hess is buried.
