Attack by skinheads

Potsdam - Two skinheads had apparently pushed a Vietnamese man out of a moving train in eastern Germany, causing him to break both his ankles, police said here yesterday. The man alleged that when he asked two Germans - whom he described as shaven-headed - about a stop on the journey, the men took away his ticket and then pushed him out of the train between the towns of Ruhland and Hoyerswerda.
