BERLIN -- Authorities have arrested three men in connection with a plan to produce and distribute compact discs of banned neo-Nazi music that calls for the murder of politicians, entertainers and police officers, the Berlin prosecutor's office said Tuesday.
The three, identified only by their first names and last-name initials, are accused of planning to reproduce a CD by a neo-Nazi rock band. The men planned to print 3,000 copies of the CD in eastern Europe before importing them into Germany and distributing them underground, said Ariane Faust, a prosecutor's office spokeswoman.
