Germany far-right leader charged with incitement

Berlin prosecutors have charged the head of Germany's top far-right party with incitement and defamation for targeting nonwhite players on the nation's soccer team in a pamphlet printed before the 2006 World Cup. Prosecutor Simone Herbeth said in a statement Tuesday that Udo Voigt, head of the National Democratic Party, and two other party members, were charged with incitement and defamation over the pamphlets. The flyers showed the traditional white German jersey with the No. 25 - worn at the time by black defender Patrick Owomoyela. They read: "White, not just a jersey color! For a real NATIONAL team!"
