Germany warns of extreme-right threat

Text size Aa Aa

Police in Stuttgart have seized rifles and ammunition from the homes of far-right extremists.

The raids targeted a group called Standarte Wuerttemberg but it’s not thought they had any connection to Norway’s mass killer.

However any activity involving extreme right-wingers is currently causing much attention across Europe.

Interior minister Hans-Peter Friedrich has warned that Germany’s home-grown far-right scene has a dangerous fringe, potentially capable of mounting deadly attacks.

His warning came as a police union suggested that an alarm be set up for the internet allowing web users to report extremist content such as that propagated by Norway’s terror suspect.
