Germany detains 12 in far-right terror investigation

A total of 12 men were arrested in Germany for allegedly conspiring to organize "attacks on politicians, asylum-seekers and people of Muslim faith," the federal prosecutor's office in Karlsruhe announced on Friday.

The operations took place in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saxony-Anhalt and the 12 arrested include five individuals as well as eight of their accomplices, all believed to be part of a far-right terror group.

German authorities explained that the eight accomplices were planning to back the far-right terror group financially, provide them with weapons and take part in future attacks.
