Colombian president apologizes

Colombia’s president, Iván Duque, has issued a rebuke after cadets at a police academy caused outrage by dressing up as Nazis for a cultural exchange event in honour of Germany.

Photos of the ceremony were shared on an official police Twitter account on Thursday.

Students are seen dressed in the grey-green uniform of the Wehrmacht, one of them sporting a small, Adolf Hitler-style moustache. Others are dressed in the black uniform of the SS, with the red swastika armband.

Germany’s black, red and yellow flag and balloons in the same colours decorated the venue, which also featured a replica Luftwaffe plane, copies of Nazi firearms and swastikas on the tablecloths.
