Germany mulls ban on far-right group

BERLIN (AP) — German officials have conducted searches at the homes and workplaces of alleged neo-Nazis in Bavaria in what they say is an effort to gather evidence that would allow them to ban a far-right group.

Bavaria's state interior ministry said some 700 officers searched more than 70 locations across the region on Wednesday and seized evidence including computers, far-right documents and weapons. There was no word of any arrests.

Authorities were targeting an organization called Free Network South, which they say links 20 neo-Nazi groups with about 150 members.

The ministry says authorities will now evaluate the material seized Wednesday to see whether they can ban Free Network South.
