German police raid banned far-right group in 4 states

Published Tue Jun 23 2020 07:13:16 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
German police are conducting raids on sites linked to a far-right group after the country’s top security official deemed it extremist. Interior Minister Horst Seehofer banned the group Nordadler, which means ‘Northern Eagle,’ early Tuesday. His office said the police raids were carried out in four German states. It said the group acted mainly online, spreading far-right extremist ideology and anti-Semitism. Authorities say Northern Eagle members see themselves as adherents of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. The group uses social media channels such as Telegram, Instagram and Discord to promote its ideology win new recruits. Members have condoned attacks such as the anti-Semitic shooting at a synagogue in Halle last year.
