German authorities issued a warrant for the arrest of a second participant group of neo-Nazis, consisting of six people.
Arrests and searches were conducted on January 25 in six Federal States — Baden-württemberg, Berlin, Brandenburg, lower Saxony, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saxony-Anhalt.
During the raids police seized from the suspects a large quantity of weapons and explosives.
