Anger as German AfD leader urges 'pride' in wartime troopsGerman politicians voiced outrage Friday after a leader of the rightwing populist AfD party said Germany should be proud of its soldiers who fought in two world wars. Alexander Gauland, 76, a top candidate of the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany in September 24 elections, also said the country had sufficiently atoned for its crimes and should "reclaim its past". The Social Democrats' Thomas Oppermann said such comments "expose Gauland as an ultra-right militarist", while Greens lawmaker Volker Beck labelled his statements "ever more disgusting".
