Raids in Germany and Britain in Nusra Front probe

Apartments and other properties in western Germany and Britain are being searched in an investigation into two people accused of supporting the Nusra Front, German prosecutors said.

Federal prosecutors said the raids were conducted on Wednesday in an effort to secure more evidence against the pair, whom they did not identify.

The suspects are accused of having supported the Nusra Front, an al Qaida-linked group in Syria, for several years, collecting donations and helping organise aid convoys.

They are suspected of sending ambulances, medical equipment, medicine and food to the group in Syria.

The Nusra Front has renamed itself the Fatah al-Sham Front.
