Spanish Soccer Fans Fined For Displaying Nazi Symbols

A Spanish government commission has imposed fines of 3,000 euros each on four Real Madrid fans who displayed Nazi symbols at last month’s La Liga match against city rivals Atletico at Real’s Bernabeu stadium.

The four were members of the radical “Ultras Sur” group and the symbols displayed including a swastika and the German word “Totenkopf”, a reference to the Nazis’ SS paramilitary organisation, according to an official who asked not to be identified by name.
