A photo of the founder of Germany's new right-wing populist movement looking like Adolf Hitler surfaced Wednesday, sparking a storm of protest and raising fresh questions about the group's alleged extremist leanings.Bild daily quoted the spokeswoman for the so-called PEGIDA group, Kathrin Oertel, as saying the picture of Lutz Bachmann disguised as the Nazi leader, which went viral on social media, had been "a joke". On Monday, PEGIDA canceled its evening march in Dresden after police banned all public open-air gatherings within city limits for the day, citing the "concrete threat" of an assassination attempt against the group's leaders.The group, which had drawn 25,000 supporters to a march in the city the week before, has vowed to rally again next week.
