A 41-year-old American tourist has been beaten up by a passer-by after performing a Nazi salute in the German city of Dresden.

The man was leaving a bar, and was reportedly extremely inebriated, when he performed the Nazi salute.

A passer-by took offence to this and beat him, injuring him lightly.

Displays of Nazi imagery or gestures are illegal under German law, and the man is now under investigation by the police. Whilst a fine is the most common outcome for a first offence, if convicted he could potentially serve time in jail.

Last week, two Chinese tourists were arrested and fined for performing Nazi salutes outside the Reichstag, before being allowed to leave the country with their tour group.
