Second man charged over suspected far-right terror attack plot

A second man has been charged with involvement in a German far-right extremist group which wanted to attack police, asylum-seekers and Jews.

The 51-year-old German man, identified only as Thiemo B, was charged with breaking weapons laws and helping to form a terrorist organisation.

The man was picked up as part of a series of raids along with the alleged ringleader, a 66-year-old who has been charged with incitement.

Prosecutors claim Thiemo B possessed explosives, weapons and ammunition, all of which was seized as evidence.

A total of seven people are under investigation on suspicion they founded a network on social media last year to organise attacks.

Authorities said there is no indication that concrete plans for attacks had already been made.
