Two tourists arrested in Germany over Nazi salute
Berlin police officers said they detained the two men, aged 36 and 49, after they were seen striking the Nazi-era pose and photographing each other with their mobile phones.
They face charges for "using symbols of illegal organizations", police said in a statement quoted by Reuters. They were released after posting bail of 500 euros each.
Germany has strict laws on hate speech and symbols linked to Hitler and the Nazis.
