German police raid homes of neo-Nazis

BERLIN (AP) — German police say they have raided 44 homes linked to suspected neo-Nazis believed to have taken part in an illegal torchlight parade in eastern Germany.
Saxony police spokesman Lorenz Haase said 190 police officers were involved in Thursday's raids in Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and Brandenburg looking for evidence against 41 neo-Nazis. They're believed to have participated in a September march in the town of Stolpen, east of Dresden, wearing black clothing with black hoods, white masks and carrying torches.
Police say such marches are used to spread their far-right ideology. Police aren't saying what led them to the particular suspects, who are being investigated for breaking public assembly laws, nor whether any evidence was found in the raids. There were no arrests.
