Tens of thousands of flag-waving fans greeted West Germany's World Cup champions Monday, a day after four people were killed and hundreds injured when jubilant street celebrations turned violent. The celebrations began moments after West Germany's 1-0 victory over Argentina in Sunday's World Cup final at Rome. Bands of neo-Nazi skinheads and other hooligans then began brawling with police in East Berlin and in the West German cities of Hamburg and Bielefeld.

The toll of injured West Berlin police officers rose to 322 from a May Day march that erupted into the city's worst riot in several years, police said. A police spokesman said that about 2,000 marchers left the parade in the city's Kreuzberg district and pelted officers with stones, bottles and firebombs. Demonstrators, many of them masked, smashed windows of banks and shops, looted food and liquor stores, overturned and set fire to cars and built blazing barricades. Police, who used tear gas and water cannon to quell the demonstration, arrested at least 16 people.
