The iconic Reichstag, a powerful symbol and building of some historical note in Germany, was engulfed in flames by arsonists, most likely paid by the Nazi party, in 1933.
Berlin police said in a statement that two male tourists, aged 36 and 49, were using their smartphones to photograph each other engaging in the salutes before the historic site, which is home to Germany's parliament. The maximum penalty is three years in prison. They were released on bail of 500 euros, or almost $600, each. Laws prohibiting the salute also exist across Austria, Sweden, Russia, Slovakia, Switzerland and several other nations.
Police say officers witnessed the middle-aged men make the salute while snapping photos on their mobile phones.
