Greek 'neo-Nazis' poised for success in European elections

The ultra-nationalist Golden Dawn party in Greece has launched its campaign for the European elections, which are less than three weeks away.

The group, that many regard as a neo-Nazi party and has several of its MPs in prison, could win seats in the European Parliament.
