	 BONN, Germany (Reuter) - A former neo-Nazi, eager to prove
he had turned his back on political violence, led German police
to six caches of guns and explosives, prosecutors said Thursday.
	 Peter Naumann took police to the secret sites in northern
and central Germany over the past few days and planned to take
them to another four, a spokesman for the Federal Prosecutors'
Office in Karlsruhe said.
	 Around 110 pounds of explosives, a pistol and a Kalashnikov
rifle have been recovered, as well as landmines and grenades, a
television program making a film about Naumann said in a
statement.
	 The Panorama program said Naumann planned to lead police to
a total of around 330 pounds of explosives.
	 Naumann, a trained chemist, was a neo-Nazi explosives expert
who was convicted for a string of bomb attacks in the late
1970s. He was also found guilty of trying to form a terrorist
organization.
