Police raid homes of alleged neo-Nazi supporters

(AP)  BERLIN — German prosecutors say police are raiding the homes of four alleged supporters of a neo-Nazi group linked to the killings of nine immigrants and a policewoman over the past decade.

The federal prosecutors' office said Wednesday the four people are suspected of having provided the far-right group with weapons and, in one case, explosives. They were not identified.

Prosecutors say seven apartments and two office premises are being searched in the eastern states of Saxony and Thuringia and southwestern Baden-Wuerttemberg state.

The alleged founders of the Nationalist Socialist Underground group, Uwe Boehnhardt and Uwe Mundlos, died in an apparent murder-suicide in November. A third suspected member, Beate Zschaepe, turned herself in shortly afterward.
