ARGENTINE police arrested 36 skinheads at an event celebrating the 120th anniversary of the birth of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

The arrests came after a "prolonged and meticulous investigation'', said Daniel Perez, the second in command of the Federal Police unit in charge of investigating hate crimes.

Police broke into the Central Argentine Club, in the town of San Martin, in Buenos Aires province, while a recital was being held by the local chapter of the neo-Nazi group "Blood and Honour''.

Police found Nazi-related material, including flags with swastikas, films and CDs of music with racist and anti-semitic lyrics.
