The German police raided members of the far-right group Nordadler (Nordic eagle) in four federal states. Minister Seehofer of the Interior banned the group early this morning. It is not clear whether people have been arrested or materials have been seized.

The group was mainly active online and spread far-right ideologies and anti-Semitism through social media channels such as Telegram, Instagram and Discord. New members were also recruited through these channels and extremist attacks were approved, such as the attack at a synagogue in Halle last year. Nordadler members consider themselves supporters of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

The raids are part of a large-scale operation against the extreme right in Germany. Earlier this year, Seehofer banned the neo-Nazi groups of Combat 18 and United German Peoples and Tribes.
