BERLIN (Reuters) – Hungarian authorities on Wednesday arrested a German suspected of selling arms via an anti-immigrant website called “Migrants’ Fright”, the Berlin public prosecutor said on Wednesday.

The 34-year-old man ran the website from Hungary to serve German clients from May to November 2016 before it was shut down, the prosecutor’s office said.

An internet search showed the website offered “first class and discretely delivered” ammunition and guns such as pistols and Kalashnikovs to clients “without troublesome bureaucratic hurdles or annoying paperwork”.
