Four arrests as Italian neo-Nazi Web site shut down


Rome, November 16 - Italian police on Friday
arrested four people after shutting down the Italian Web site of
neo-Nazi group Stormfront.
The four are accused of inciting racial and ethnic hatred on
the site, which has regularly posted anti-Semitic and white
supremacist propaganda.
The arrests were made in Milan, Frosinone and Pescara while
17 searches were carried out across the country, most in the
'Nazi-Fascist' propaganda and weapons were found.
Last December Rome prosecutors launched a probe into
Stormfront's blacklisting of religious figures, politicians,
journalists and judges.
The Italia branch of Stormfront is part of an international
body founded by former head of the Ku Klux Klan, Don Black.
The blacklist included: Turin Archbishop Cesare Nosiglia;
Riccardo Pacifici, the President of the Jewish
Community in Rome; Adel Smith, the President of the Muslim Union
of Italy; and journalists Gad Lerner and Maurizio Costanzo.
According to media reports, those on the list were targeted
because of their support for immigrants.
Stormfront also targeted Italo-Ghanaian soccer striker Mario
Balotelli after he revealed on a visit to Auschwitz that one of
his adoptive parents was Jewish.
