Austrian police have charged nine men for violating anti-Nazi laws when they yelled a slogan associated with Adolf Hitler.
In a statement, police said Monday that eight Austrians and one German between the ages of 18 and 46 were charged for chanting "Sieg Heil" with their right arms raised in the Nazi salute.
Several people reported the incident to the public prosecutor's office in western Ausria's Salzburg.
Witnesses said that the men seemed to be drunk.
A 30-year-old German was detained Sunday at the scene, at Salzburg city's main train terminal, after acting aggressively against police officers and taken to the police center.
None are being identified in line with Austrian privacy laws.
Some 6 million European Jews, including 1.5 million children, were systematically killed by Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany during World War II. Holocaust victims represented about two-thirds of the 9 million Jewish people living in Europe.
