Police Arrest More Than 80 Neo-Nazis on Hitler Birthday
     FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) - Police arrested more than 80 neo-Nazis
 who marked Adolf Hitler's birthday with parties in several parts of
 Germany.
     Rightist propaganda, weapons and racist music tapes were seized,
 authorities said Friday.
     Thursday marked the 106th anniversary of Hitler's birth. The
 Nazi dictator committed suicide on April 30, 1945, as the Red Army
 entered Berlin at the end of World War II.
     Most of those arrested late Thursday were released, but
 authorities said some of them would face charges. It is illegal in
 Germany to be a member of a Nazi party, possess Nazi materials,
 give the Nazi salute, promote racism or deny that the Holocaust
 occurred.
     Three of those arrested are known neo-Nazi leaders, police said.
     Rightists were arrested in Kaufbeuren, Nuremberg, Reutlingen,
 Magdeburg and several other towns.
