BERLIN – Right-wing extremists have killed 41 people in Germany since the country’s 1990 reunification, according to an official quoted in a report to be published Friday.

The number of neo-Nazi victims has been raised by five after several recent killings were deemed to have had a rightist motive, said the Tagesspiegel newspaper quoting a spokeswoman from the Federal Crime Bureau (BKA).

In the latest confirmed killing, a skinhead stabbed a leftist to death in a Dortmund subway last March, said the report.

Independent research by the Tagesspiegel and the Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper arrive at a far higher death toll.

Alone for the period 1990 to 2003 the papers say that 99 people were killed by neo-Nazis in Germany.

The difference between the official figure and that reached by the newspapers is partly due to the BKA’s demand for convictions or court evidence of rightist motives before adding victims to the list.
