Politicians failed to calm the situation in a German village where people have attacked the building housing two sex offenders, and held repeated protests - attracting neo-Nazis calling for the death penalty. [...]

It has certainly been turned into a place of confrontation, with police now on permanent patrol around the newly-erected fence surrounding the men's house - after a mob tried to storm it last week. The neo-Nazi NPD party has embraced the issue, sending members from around the region to push their "death penalty for child abusers" idea.
