Four suspected right-wing extremists have been arrested for allegedly desecrating a Jewish cemetery in southwestern Germany last weekend, police said Friday. Three of the four men admitted to knocking over more than 70 gravestones at the cemetery in Ihringen, near the French border, on Aug. 11, police in Freiburg said. When police searched their apartments, they found far-right music, an old pistol and ammunition. The men were aged between 15 and 28 and their identities were not revealed. They are under investigation on suspicion of disturbing the peace of the death and damaging property.
