German Jews want internet action

A Jewish organisation in Germany says it's planning to take legal action against internet service providers that carry neo-Nazi or extreme right-wing websites.

The vice-president of the German Central Council for Jews, Michael Friedman, said the action was mainly aimed at websites containing material banned by law for its anti-semitic or racist content.

The council says it is following the example set in France, where the courts have ordered a leading service provider, Yahoo, to prevent French internet users gaining access to sites auctioning Nazi memorabilia.
