Police took most of the skinheads into custody Saturday at railway stations and on autobahns before they reached the concert hall in Triptis, a town near this eastern German city. Police confiscated knives, baseball bats, starter pistols and other weapons, as well as illegal neo-Nazi propaganda. Criminal charges are being prepared against 51 of the skinheads, accusing them of illegal weapons possession, possessing racist propaganda and displaying illegal Nazi paraphernalia. The other 180 were released. Interior Minister Richard Dewes of Thuringia state told reporters Sunday the arrests show that eastern Germany won't tolerate being used as a parade ground for violence-prone extremists.
