Chinese tourists arrested in Berlin for Nazi salute at Berlin Reichstag

Chinese tourists arrested after Hitler salutes in Germany

German police on Saturday arrested two Chinese tourists for making illegal "Heil Hitler" salutes in front of the historic Reichstag building that houses the German parliament. This includes the Hitler salute, also known as the Nazi salute, which is illegal in Germany as well as Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, and restricted in many other countries.

According to police officers in Berlin, the two men, aged 36 and 49, were seen striking "Heil Hitler" salutes in front of the Reichstag building, and taking photographs of each other on their phones.

Police said the tourists could face a fine or up to three years in prison for it.

The increase in the number of Chinese tourists and the growing efforts by countries to attract them have not been met with open arms around the globe, as many complain of a clash of cultures, language and common courtesy. They were freed after posting a bail of 500 euros ($593).

Criminal proceedings have been started against the middle-aged men for using symbols from a banned organisation. According to the AFP, the spokesman said the two tourists were free to leave Germany while the investigation was carried out, and that should a fine be levied, it would likely be covered by their bail money. It's unclear whether the two tourists are even still in Germany.

The Post reported the Chinese government has expressed concern in the past for "embarrassing behavior" by Chinese tourists traveling overseas and has encouraged travelers to respect local laws and customs.
