Heidelberg, Germany (dpa) - German police were holding six men Friday over the neo-Nazi beating of a 29-year-old Turkish man in the tourist centre of Heidelberg.

They are alleged to have punched him and stolen his mobile phone while they were travelling on the same municipal bus late Wednesday night. The accused, aged 16 to 38, all appeared to be far rightists.

Police said they were hunting a seventh accused. Area police were also investigating an apparently racist attack on an Eritrean man the same evening in the nearby city of Ludwigshafen.
