Right-wing youth group is raided

October 10, 2008|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

German authorities carried out raids nationwide at offices and homes of about 100 people as part of an investigation of a youth group accused of indoctrinating children and teenagers with neo-Nazi ideals.

The Interior Ministry said there were no arrests but authorities sought evidence against the Homeland-Faithful German Youth, or HDJ, loosely linked to the far-right National Democratic Party.

Police confiscated documents, computers, digital storage devices and other objects.

"An anti-Semitic and racist tenor can be seen in HDJ publications," the Interior Ministry said after the raids.
