Kaiserslautern fans show Hitler salute
KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany (AP) -Kaiserslautern has reported a group of fans to police after they allegedly insulted Israel striker Itay Shechter with Hitler salutes.
The struggling Bundesliga club says the incident occurred during practice Sunday, one day after a 4-0 loss at Mainz dropped Kaiserslautern to next to last.
The group of "fewer than 10'' people are among hooligans that have been banned from games for years.
The club has asked police to investigate and possibly file charges and has urged fans to identify the perpetrators.
The club said it "distances itself expressly from any form of racism, discrimination or anti-Semitism,'' Kaiserslautern said in a statement.
