BERLIN (AP) — Germans itching to shoot virtual Nazis will soon get a chance to do so, after a change in the rules concerning the use of forbidden symbols in video games. U.S. games publisher Bethesda Softworks said Wednesday that the international version of its upcoming first-person shooter "Wolfenstein: Youngblood" will be available in Germany, complete with swastikas and other Nazi symbols, for over-18s. Public displays of Nazi symbols are illegal in Germany, except for artistic or educational purposes. Video gamers have long complained that previous installments in the popular "Wolfenstein" series sold in Germany omitted obvious references to the Nazis, despite them clearly being depicted as evil.

Pompeo: Fox News host's questioning Trump's FBI comments a ‘Washington piece of silliness'
When Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Pompeo Sunday if "accepting oppo research from a foreign government right or wrong?" the former CIA director responded: "Chris, you know, you asked me not to call any of your questions today ridiculous. "President Trump has been very clear that he will always make sure that he gets it right for the American people and I'm confident he'll do that here as well," Pompeo said. Trump in an interview last week with ABC's George Stephanopoulos said that he would take damaging information — which he referred to as "oppo research" instead of as interference in a U.S. election by foreign governments — and that he would do so without necessarily alerting the FBI.
