Off-duty Swiss soldiers stop neo-Nazi attack on Africans

GENEVA - A group of off-duty Swiss soldiers rescued three black men from a neo-Nazi attack and pursued the extremists until police arrived, police said Friday. The soldiers happened on the attack early Thursday close to Geneva's main train station. The eight neo-Nazis were verbally abusing and assaulting the African men when the soldiers intervened. Police said the six soldiers shielded the victims and chased the attackers until officers arrived. Four Swiss, three Frenchmen, a Briton and one Frenchwoman ages 18 to 27 were arrested in the attack.
