Report: US providers shut neo-Nazi sites

An agency set up by German regional governments said Monday that US-based providers have shut down at its request a number of sites that offered neo-Nazi material.

The sites included a multilingual forum for neo-Nazis and a page that offered links to the “Top 100 Nationalist and Revisionist Sites,” the agency jugendschutz.net said. It did not identify the providers or say how many sites were shut.

Spreading far-right propaganda and displaying Nazi symbols are both illegal under postwar German laws meant to prevent any revival of Nazism. German officials have expressed concern over growing use of the Internet by neo-Nazis.

Jugendschutz.net was set up in 1997 by Germany’s 16 states in an effort to protect young people from unsuitable material on the Internet. It said Monday that it has secured the closure of more than 350 far-right Web sites over the past three years.
