Papradno skins charged

A district attorney has laid charges of promoting fascism against six skinheads who took part in a neo-Nazi concert in September last year in the western Slovak hamlet of Papradno.

The concert attracted some 500 people, 89 of whom were questioned by police after a late-night raid. The six who were arrested were allegedly attired in clothing which promoted racial hatred. They face up to three years in jail if convicted.
