Translated from Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad today:

Two neo-Nazis detained after attack on home of activist woman in Germany

The German police have arrested two men suspected of carrying out an attack on the home of a 41-year-old woman near Göttingen (Lower Saxony). These are right-wing extremists aged 23 and 26. The latter was seriously injured because the explosive that he wanted to throw into the house exploded prematurely, German media report.

According to the state minister of the interior, the woman is known for her fight against the right in the region. The two suspects belong to the extreme right-wing scene in the city, said Minister Boris Pistorius (SPD).

The duo blew up the letterbox in the front door of the activist’s home in Einbeck yesterday morning. Although the explosive went off prematurely, fragments of the letterbox on the inside flew many meters into the living area due to the force. There were no injuries.

A witness saw two suspects run away after the bang and called the police. Shortly later, they were able to find the men in an apartment where the blood trail of one of them led to. The 26-year-old is known to the public prosecution service. He was charged with sedition late last year. Weapons were seized in the apartment of the two.

The 26-year-old visited the concentration camp monument in nearby Moringen with two other right-wing extremists in November. They downplayed the imprisonment of men, women and young people in the SS-led camp against employees. The trio also posed in right-wing extremist T-shirts in front of the gates of the former concentration camp.

Series of attacks on anti-fascists

The extent of the damage proves the strength of the explosive, according to the 41-year-old woman’s lawyer. “You shouldn’t think about what could have happened if someone had been near the door”, he told public broadcaster NDR. According to him, his client was “already a target of threats from members of the neo-Nazi scene in Einbeck” in the past. The attack, he said, had a new, more dangerous dimension. In the south of the state of Lower Saxony, according to the lawyer, “a series of attacks by neo-Nazis against committed anti-fascists” has been going on for some time.
