OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police are trying to find whoever burned a Nazi symbol into the grass at an Omaha park memorializing U.S. military members who died in World War II.

Someone used a chemical or other means Saturday to turn green grass into a brown swastika several feet across at Memorial Park in east-central Omaha. The parks department has tilled over the swastika, and the city intends to reseed the area.

No arrests have been reported.

Police say other Nazi symbols, including hate-filled books and flyers, have shown up elsewhere in Omaha in recent weeks.
