Some people thought it was just some Fasnacht fun, albeit tasteless. But one witness told the Blick newspaper that he knew some of them, and they do belong to neo-Nazi groups based in the central parts of the country.

The group of 12 wore white robes and carried a flag and torches.

The police say they’re aware of the incident and say they are investigating.
