Yes that could be the headline, except the fundamentalists were white neo-Nazis, so no panic and the whole incident treated in a low key way.
According to the police, six men and one woman drove to the lake in a pick-up truck where they yelled racists slogans and verbally abused the families bathing there, most of whom were ethnic Germans who had moved to Germany from Eastern Europe following the collapse of communism. Such immigrants, many of whom speak only poor German despite their background, are often targeted by right-wing radicals.
The extremists some of whom were drunk, then shot a submachine gun into the air at least 17 times, according to the police. The ordeal only came to an end when a few of the men at the beach succeeded in overpowering the neo-Nazis and holding them down until the police arrived. The seven suspects, who range in age from 21 to 29, were charged with breaking firearms law and making the banned Hitler salute.
Meanwhile Mohamed Haneef is in custody for giving a sim card to a relative.
Dr Haneef has been charged with “recklessly” supporting a terrorist organisation, after providing a mobile phone SIM card to a relative later allegedly involved in plotting car bomb attacks in the UK. Dr Haneef said he mentioned to his father-in-law that Ahmed had been arrested over the foiled terrorism attacks in London and Glasgow.
“So (my father-in-law) he said to me ‘Why are you worried about that?’ So I just said ‘keep calm, if we have not done anything, then just nothing to worry’.”
Dr Haneef told the AFP he was told by his father-in-law to call British police and “let them know what’s going on.” Dr Haneef said that he made repeated telephone calls to police officer, Tony Webster, in Britain to explain the SIM card issue, but the calls were unanswered.
