Oslo (dpa) - Norway has asked popular video sharing site Youtube to remove a neo-Nazi video that uses the country's national anthem, officials said Tuesday.

The two-minute video opens with a map of Europe and contains photos of several European cities including Moscow, Stockholm and Berlin as well as flags, Nazi and Norse symbols and a few images of soldiers.

The video was attributed to the German-based group Nordreich.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Frode Overland Andersen said the ministry had learned of the video 'before Christmas' and had approached Youtube immediately.

'So far we have not had any response,' Andersen said.

Andersen said the ministry regarded the video as 'tasteless' and 'condemned the abuse of a national symbol.'
