German police storm neo-Nazi network

German police have stormed 26 apartments belonging to 39 members of the Artgemeinschaft network in 12 states, including Bavaria, Baden-Wuerttemberg, and Brandenburg. Al Jazeera reports that the association, described as a “cult-like, deeply racist and anti-Semitic association” that sought to indoctrinate children with Nazi ideology, counts about 150 members and has links to several other far-right groups. Last week the country also banned the local chapter of the US-based Hammerskins neo-Nazi group known for its white supremacist rock concerts.
