After numerous clips showing Nazi salutes were published on YouTube, the Austrian authorities started an investigation over the young soldiers who appeared in them. The Defense Minister Norbert Darabos said for Reuters that all the soldiers were identified and will be soon questioned about the YouTube clips. It seems like the clips were recorded with a mobile phone and showed some Austrian soldiers who were saluting each another using the famous 'Heil Hitler' expression.
"There is zero tolerance for such actions. Those involved will have to answer to the army and the law and take the consequences," the Defense Minister said according to Reuters. "Did these soldiers want to win over others to their convictions or was this perhaps just a drunken party?" Salzburg prosecutor Karl Rene Fuerlinger added for the same source.
