German authorities have launched an investigation after a man tried to import Nazi soldiers' helmets and other banned memorabilia in his car from the Czech Republic, police said on Tuesday. A spokesman for the German border police said the 62-year-old man was stopped at the border on Sunday and Nazi items he had bought at a Czech flea market were found in the boot of his car. The man, who was briefly detained, may face charges under Germany's anti-Nazi laws which ban possession of items with Nazi symbols.
