German police raid homes of far-right suspects
BERLIN (AP) — German police on Tuesday raided the homes of 12 people who are suspected of having formed a far-right group that wanted to attack immigrants and foreigners.
The suspects are aged between 19 and 57 years and their homes were searched in Schleswig-Holstein and elsewhere in Germany, police in the northern state said in a statement.
The 12 suspects allegedly founded the group “Aryan Circle Germany” with others in July in the town of Bad Segeberg in northern Germany. All suspects are known to have far-right views.
The suspects openly showed their support for the far-right group by posing with the symbols and slogans of the group for photos.
The raids of their homes were conducted to find further evidence, the statement said.
