West Germany's far-right Republican Party launched a nationwide campaign to win seats in the European Parliament in elections scheduled for June 18. Anti-Nazi groups picketed the meeting in a Bonn suburb, and about 50 protesters shouting "Nazis Out!" crashed the rally but were thrown out by participants. Earlier, party leader Franz Schoenhuber told foreign media that he is no admirer of the late Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler and said there is no basis to the charge that he is anti-Semitic.
