A huge stash of weapons is found in Italy with neo-Nazi sympathisers and the government says the seizure is unprecedented.
An arsenal of weapons has been seized by Italian police in a raid on a far-right group. The stockpile was discovered during an investigation into the involvement of Italy's far-right movement in the conflict in eastern Ukraine. And it included an air-to-air missile, rocket launchers and automatic rifles described as 'latest generation'. Neo-nazi propaganda material was also seized. Police have arrested three people, including a former candidate for the neo-fascist Forza Nuova party. Fabio Del Bergiolo's house was found to contain a huge stash of arms, as well as Hitler memorabilia. So, how significant is this? And what does it tell us about the re-emergence of Nazism and the far-right movement in Europe?
