Briefly: Demonstrators protest neo-Nazi racism
Question of the Day
BERLIN — Anti-racism campaigners staged vigils across Germany on Sunday to commemorate the victims of a neo-Nazi terrorist group whose existence came to light a year ago.
Organizers called memorial events in two dozen cities to remember the victims of the National Socialist Underground.
The group is suspected of killing at least nine men and a policewoman during a seven-year murder spree that began in 2000.
The male victims all belonged to ethnic minorities, and for years German authorities attributed the murders to immigrant gangs.
The investigation took a dramatic turn when two fugitive neo-Nazis were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide Nov. 4, 2011.
The third alleged core member of the group, Beate Zschaepe, is in custody pending trial.
British soldier killed in fight with tourists
NICOSIA — A 19-year-old British soldier stationed in Cyprus was fatally stabbed during a fight with British tourists inside a nightclub in the island’s vacation hot spot of Ayia Napa, police said Sunday.
Police spokesman Georgios Economou said four off-duty soldiers fought with three tourists early Sunday when one of the tourists drew a switchblade and stabbed the teenage soldier.
Connie Pierce, a British military spokeswoman, said the fight happened in a part of Ayia Napa that is off limits for British soldiers because of past trouble there. The soldier served with the 2nd Battalion, Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, but his name was not released because his family has not been notified.
Britain retained two military bases on the island after the former British colony gained independence in 1960.
