On April 2, 1968, bombs went off in two department stores in Frankfurt – beginning a campaign of terrorism spearheaded by the left-wing extremist group, the Red Army Faction. Fifty years on, three suspected former members remain on the run.
Future members of the Red Army Faction committed their first known attack on April 2, 1968, when two Frankfurt department stores were hit with arson. The RAF dissolved in 1998, but many questions are still unanswered.
German police have released new photos and videos of three former Red Army Faction (RAF) terrorists who are linked to at least nine robberies. The suspects allegedly robbed an armored car last year with a bazooka.
The far-right Alternative for Germany party accuses German politicians and reporters of turning a blind eye to left-wing radicalism. DW examines this increasingly common complaint on the right.
