A man said to belong to a far-right group is under arrest after two German police officers were shot and seriously hurt while raiding a house south of Nuremburg on Wednesday.

One is in a life-threatening condition.

A shootout began in Georgensgmünd as security forces tried to confiscate weapons from the 49-year-old, reportedly a member of the ‘Reichsbürger’ or ‘Citizens of the Reich’ movement which rejects today’s German state and harks back to the 1930s.

At a news conference, Bavarian authorities stressed the dangers presented by the far-right.
