Berlin, Aug 6 (IANS) Two Chinese tourists were arrested in Berlin for making Hitler salutes outside the Reichstag building that houses the German Parliament.

The men, aged 36 and 49, were detained by the police after they were seen striking the Nazi-era pose and photographing each other with their mobile phones on Saturday, BBC reported.

They face charges for using symbols of a banned organisation and could face a fine or a jail term of up to three years, according to the police.

The men were released after posting bail of 450 pounds ($600) each.

Germany has strict laws on hate speech and symbols linked to Hitler and the Nazis.
