Three prominent clubs in eastern Germany have united in banning right-wing and other extremist symbols from their stadiums. Second-division Carl Zeiss Jena and two third-division clubs, Dynamo Dresden and Magdeburg, said Friday they would not allow fans wearing or carrying extremist symbols. "We will not tolerate anti-Semitism, violence and xenophobia in our stadiums and in our clubs," Dynamo's chief executive Bernd Maas said. Matches in former East Germany, especially in lower divisions, often have been marred by the presence of neo-Nazis and hooligan violence.
