It is claimed that unit within Germany's special forces has been involved with far-right extremism, leading prosecutors in Tubingen to open an investigation

A woman who knows one of the soldiers in the Special Operations Command alleged that some German soldiers gave Nazi salutes and played music usually popular with neo-Nazis at a party.

It is claimed that this took place at a leaving party for a company commander, according to The Local.

Those at the event also allegedly took part in parkour, a military-based obstacle sport which had a Middle Ages Theme. It is claimed they hurled pig heads and sliced melons with swords.

The woman also told broadcasters NDR and Radio Bremen that she has WhatsApp messages which say the soldiers were going to offer the leaving commander consensual sex with her as a prize for winning athletics.

An investigation into the matter was confirmed by prosecutor Michael Pfohl on Thursday (August 17).

The German army is also conducting an internal investigation on the matter, and whilst it has confirmed that pig heads were thrown it has not yet confirmed whether the soldiers engaged in far-right extremism.
