A GERMAN school bus driver could face jail time for giving the stiff-armed Hitler salute to pupils as they boarded each day.

Police said they also found compact discs with neo-Nazi rock music on board the bus in the southern town of Vilshofen and were investigating whether the 39-year-old driver had played them for the adolescents.

Teachers had reported the driver to police, accusing him of giving far-right CDs to the children.

The suspect admitted during questioning to regularly giving the Nazi salute to the pupils over the course of several weeks.

Germany's Basic Law bans the use of Nazi symbols, punishable by up to three years in prison.
