Man convicted for Nazi salute

Published torsdag 31 januari 2013 kl 11.32

A man who did a Nazi salute at a screening in Malmö of a European Championship football match has been fined and convicted of racial hatred.

The man was watching the Euro 2012 finals group clash between Sweden and Ukraine on an outdoor screening in one of the town's parks last summer when he made the salute. He said it was an internal joke among friends and he was too drunk to realise the offensiveness of his actions, news agency TT reports.

This is the first time in three years that someone has been convicted of a hate crime in Malmö, despite hundreds such crimes being reported each year.
