  • Drunk US tourist beaten up after giving Nazi salute in Germany

Police say a drunken American man was punched by a passer-by as he gave the stiff-armed Nazi salute multiple times in downtown Dresden.

The Independent are reporting that the 41 year old sustained minor injuries after the assault which occurred at 8.15am on Saturday morning. According to official accounts, the unknown attacker fled the scene and is now being sought for causing bodily harm. At the police station, the man registered a 0.276 percent blood alcohol level. The two tourists were fined almost $600 each but were permitted to leave the country with their tour group, police said. The insignia in question prompted a separate police investigation.

The incident marked the second time this month that tourists got themselves into legal trouble for giving the Nazi salute in Germany. They were later freed after posting a 500 Euro bail.

Tensions have escalated rapidly in recent weeks after North Korea tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July. But it also said that if the USA and South Korea took a first strike against North Korea, China should intervene.


While residents of Germany and Austria, as well as many of their European neighbors, are educated on the laws forbidding Nazi symbols and expressions, it's not clear if Chinese tourists are aware of the post-1945 statutes.

Germany outlawed the salute after World War II, along with Holocaust denial and other symbols and signals associated with the Nazis. "Don't do it anywhere in fact".
