Police foil extremist attacks

Right-wing extremists were considering attacks on people and buildings in the Czech Republic, the organised crime squad of the police announced Tuesday. A March raid led to nine suspects were not taken into custody but are being investigated for founding, supporting and promoting a movement suppressive of human rights and freedoms. Police say the charges may be extended because some members of the group may be responsible for arson attacks, including a recent attack on a dormitory also inhabited by Roma in the town of Aš. The raids reportedly uncovered neo-Nazi promotional materials, illegal firearms, instructions and material for explosives and industrial detonators.
