A 24-year-old man described as "Israel's first neo-Nazi soldier" was arrested on Monday after landing in Israel at Ben-Gurion airport.

Dmitri Bogotich, who was extradited from Kyrgyzstan, was detained on suspicion of heading a gang of neo-Nazis in Petah Tikva.

Bogotich's gang – Patrol 36 - carried out alleged hate crimes against religious people, the homeless and foreign workers. He escaped to Russia immediately following his first investigation in the case in 2007, before the harshest attacks were even discovered.
