Neo-Nazi violence rises
BERLIN: Violent acts by neoNazis and other far-right groups in Germany rose 14% to 1 600 last year, reflecting a steady increase in anti-immigrant sentiment triggered by the arrival of large numbers of refugees since 2014, an intelligence report said.
The annual report by the BfV domestic intelligence agency estimated that some 12 100 people with far-right views in Germany were considered ready to commit acts of violence, an increase of about 300 people, or 2.5%, from 2015.
“We see a clear radicalisation in both substance and rhetoric regarding asylum matters from farright extremists,” it said. Reuters
