German Police conducted a raid on 13 December against sympathizers of the banned extreme-right organization Blood & Honour in five states at once, resulting in four arrests and the confiscation of materials with radical content. Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA) reported that Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann announced the news.

Police officers undertook a total of 15 house searches in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Hesse, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia, confiscating materials with Nazi swastikas and similarly banned symbols, musical recordings and weapons. The Blood & Honour group has been banned in Germany since the year 2000.

Those arrested are suspected of having attempted to revive the group's activities by disseminating entertainment material. According to data from the German Government, more than 400 extremists are currently evading arrest warrants, some of whom are most probably hiding in neighboring countries including the Czech Republic.
