Swastika symbols seen in unusual places around the world, in pictures

September 25th, 2014

German builders who fitted a supposedly random set of bricks into the ground for a new shopping precinct claim it was an accident when several of them ended up forming a swastika. Use of Nazi symbols is illegal in Germany and can result in jail sentences, so when shoppers at the new precinct in the historic north-western German town of Goslar in Lower Saxony spotted the swastika made of bricks, they instantly called police.
