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.

At least 26 people were detained when neo-Nazis and leftists clashed during a rally in West Germany to commemorate the death two years ago of Rudolf Hess, Adolf Hitler's deputy, police said. The disturbances broke out as about 200 neo-Nazis marched through the northern Bavarian town of Wunsiedel, where Hess is buried. About 110 leftists who had rallied in Wunsiedel earlier to denounce Nazis returned to confront the neo-Nazi march, screaming insults that led to clashes, a police spokesman said.
