An Israeli footballer was the victim of antisemitic abuse after fans aimed a Nazi salute at him during a training session.
Itay Shechter, who plays for German side Kaiserslautern, was targeted by up to ten people chanting antisemitic jeers. They also made the Nazi salute, an illegal act under German law.
Mr Shechter, 24, moved to the club from Hapoel Tel Aviv last summer.
