The German daily Junge Welt reported Saturday that German neo-Nazis trained at a paramilitary camp organised by the far-right Hungarian National Frontline in Bony, a village in western Hungary, between July 10 and 14.

Budapest -- Hungarian police said Tuesday they are investigating whether German neo-Nazi groups held a training camp in western Hungary in July, following a report by a German newspaper.

"The National Investigation Office is looking into the case and is checking whether the information published in the media is true," police spokesman Laszlo Bartha told AFP.

"We haven't received any information about the gathering yet," he added.

The German daily Junge Welt reported Saturday that German neo-Nazis trained at a paramilitary camp organised by the far-right Hungarian National Frontline in Bony, a village in western Hungary, between July 10 and 14.

The programme included shooting practice and combat training, according to an online brochure for the event.

On Monday, Hungarian state television m1 showed footage of the camp, which had house rules like "No entrance to gays, Jews and gypsies" posted on advertising boards.

In August, Hungarian police banned a planned march in Budapest by fascist groups to mark the anniversary of the death of Rudolf Hess, the deputy to German wartime Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
