Germany busts alleged far-right plot to attack Jews, refugees

Via Times of Israel:

German authorities on Wednesday carried out dawn raids against far-right suspects accused of plotting attacks on Jews, refugees and police, federal prosecutors said.

Police swooped on 12 homes and other sites in six states “as part of a federal investigation on suspicion of forming a right-wing extremist organization,” the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.

Six suspects, “connected primarily via social media,” are accused of founding the group “and in early 2016 beginning plans for armed attacks against police officers as representatives of the state, asylum seekers and members of the Jewish community.”

Another seven people are believed to have offered assistance to the group, including acquiring weapons.
