German authorities have uncovered a neo-Nazi network inside the country's prisons. Evidence of the network was discovered in the state of Hesse during a search of prison cells.
More than five years after it began, a trial against members of a neo-Nazi group must restart from the very beginning. The case was provisionally closed because it ran so long, the presiding judge went into retirement.
The stage was already set up for a white supremacist rock concert in Thuringia, but organizers were forced to move after an access road was blocked. Police still expect thousands of neo-Nazis to attend the two-day event.
The seven neo-Nazis arrested in the German state of Saxony are facing more serious charges than previously expected. After some bad press, German prosecutors are now much quicker to reach for terrorism charges.
Germany's state prosecutor has ordered the arrest of seven men charged with forming a far-right terror group known as Revolution Chemnitz. The men are accused of planning attacks on migrants in eastern Germany.
