German minister: Weapons found in raids on banned neo-Nazi group

Hand-held firearms, a cross bow and other weapons were all confiscated amid raids on locations associated with a neo-Nazi group, Germany's interior minister says.

"This organization is an alliance of neo-Nazis who openly incite hatred against our state, our society, people with politics differing from their own, against migrants and even police," Thomas de Maiziere says after the raids.

"This organization openly advocates the values of National Socialism and wants to create a dictatorship along these lines."
