    A row with uncomfortable echoes of the past is gripping the world of Germany's student duelling societies after a club admitted a non-European member.

    Duellers in Munich objected to the fact a Mannheim club had allowed a member with an Asian background to join, despite his service in the German army.

    They're just afraid he's gunna ninja somebody instead of getting into a normal duel.



    Drunken frat boys should not be given swords.
