US Navy to Remodel 'Swastika-Shaped' Barracks


The US Navy is to spend $US600,000 ($680,000) to remodel a set of barracks in Southern California that resemble a swastika when viewed from above, officials said.

From ground level the layout of the four L-shaped buildings at the US Navy base outside San Diego is unremarkable.

But with the increasing popularity of satellite imagery websites such as Google Earth, the barracks' swastika formation have attracted wide attention, with Anti-Defamation League campaigners requesting alterations be made.

Now the Navy has agreed to remodelling that will "camouflage" the aerial appearance of the barracks, officials said.
