Austria's defense minister said Tuesday he had launched an investigation into an Internet video that reportedly showed Austrian soldiers making Hitler salutes.
Norbert Darabos said an investigation was under way and confirmed that the incident took place in an Austrian army barracks.
The video - published on the video-sharing Web site YouTube - shows several young, uniformed soldiers engaged in offensive behavior, the newspaper Kleine Zeitung reported.
It said that during the course of the video two men raise their arms in the straight-armed Nazi salute. One of the two is shown screaming "Heil Hitler," according to the newspaper.
