Report: German cops warn of Nazi violence

Sept. 9, 2012 at 1:42 PM

BERLIN, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- German police are warning that the neo-Nazi movement is under pressure and terror attacks against foreigners and Jewish targets were a growing threat.

Investigators said extremists were coming under increasing pressure by law-enforcement and could lash out "to prove their own ability to act with violence."

The report, which was obtained by Der Spiegel, was issued in July by the Federal Office of Criminal Investigations about a year after the extremist group National Socialist Underground was found to be responsible for the slayings of a police officer and nine men of Turkish and Greek origin.

The report also warned that extremists were well armed and could target German politicians and police officers, the Local.de said Sunday.
