Germany on Tuesday banned a neo-Nazi group and ordered police raids against its members.
Nordadler, or Northern Eagles, is the third far-Right organisation to be banned this year under a crackdown by Horst Seehofer, the interior minister.
The move follows the banning of Combat 18 Deutschland in January. Interior ministry sources said the Northern Eagles have been largely confined to online activities so far, but the group openly professes support for Adolf Hitler and Nazi ideology.
Members have been investigated by German prosecutors
