BONN - Chancellor Helmut Kohl's government said yesterday that neo-Nazis who rampaged at the Nazi death camp at Buchenwald last weekend must be punished severely. The US embassy in Bonn said Washington would fully support Germany's efforts to punish those responsible for right-wing violence and had offered local authorities help in pursuing the culprits. The Chancellery Minister, Friedrich Bohl, said the opposition Social Democrats should stop blocking legislation designed to deal with neo-Nazi violence. Around 20 skinheads stormed through the camp memorial on Saturday, shouting 'Sieg Heil'. Reuter
