WARSAW, Poland - An indictment was filed against a store in Poland for selling anti-Semitic accessories for soccer fans.

The Lodz District Attorney's Office filed the indictment Friday with the district court in that city.

The store is accused of selling accessories such as scarves, T-shirts, lighters and shorts with slogans promoting racial hatred, which is illegal in Poland.

Police on a search of the store uncovered merchandise containing anti-Semitic slogans. One scarf read "Sidelock hunters." Stickers read "Anti Jude" and "The Land of Widzew. Jews not allowed." Widzew is a professional Polish soccer club based in Lodz.
