SCHLUECHTERN, West Germany — Police raided a camp and detained 19 West German neo-Nazis armed with guns, knives and clubs, authorities reported Saturday.

About 40 men and women had set up camp outside the town of Bad Orb near here Friday night to prepare for a planned illegal demonstration Saturday, a police spokesman said.

Apart from the arms, police seized posters of Adolf Hitler and other Nazi paraphernalia. Membership in neo-Nazi organizations is banned in West Germany.
