Neo-Nazis sentenced in Israel

An Israeli court has sentenced a gang of neo-Nazis to up to seven years in jail for a series of violent attacks last year.

The group posted videos of their crimes on the web, the content of which included attacks on Orthodox Jews, gays and vandalism of synagogues.

A court spokesperson said the eight young men were all immigrants from the former Soviet Union.
 
The arrest of the neo-Nazi gang in October 2007 and footage of their attacks brought shock to Israel.

Around six million Jews were killed during the Nazi Holocaust of World War Two.
