German Police have arrested 12 men, including one of its own officers, in nationwide raids to hunt for an extreme-right group suspected of planning attacks on Muslims, politicians and asylum-seekers.

The raids were executed by heavily-armed special units, which hit 13 locations in six German states.

According to the sources, The four prime suspects planned to spark “a civil war-like situation… via as yet undefined attacks on politicians, asylum seekers and people of Muslim faith,” federal prosecutors said in a statement.

A further eight suspects were alleged to have agreed to “financially support the group, provide it with weapons or take part in future attacks”.

A further eight suspects were alleged to have agreed to ‘financially support the group, provide it with weapons or take part in future attacks’.

The twelve included a police officer previously suspended over suspicions he had links to the far-right, a source at the interior ministry in North-Rhine Westphalia state said, though it was not immediately clear if he was one of the prime suspects.

From its founding in September 2019, the group’s ultimate aim was ‘to shake the state and social order in Germany and in the end to overturn it,’ investigators believe.
