A huge stash of weapons is found in Italy with neo-Nazi sympathisers and the government says the seizure is unprecedented.

An arsenal of weapons has been seized by Italian police in a raid on a far-right group.
The stockpile was discovered during an investigation into the involvement of Italy’s far-right movement in the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
And it included an air-to-air missile, rocket launchers and automatic rifles described as ‘latest generation’. Neo-nazi propaganda material was also seized.
Police have arrested three people, including a former candidate for the neo-fascist Forza Nuova party. Fabio Del Bergiolo’s house was found to contain a huge stash of arms, as well as Hitler memorabilia.
So, how significant is this?
And what does it tell us about the re-emergence of Nazism and the far-right movement in Europe?
