Germany Right-Wing Terror Crimes: 8 Guilty

A court in Germany has found 8 people guilty of being members of a right-wing terror organization. The verdict was handed down Wednesday after a yearlong trial of members of the so-called “Freital Group.” The ringleader was sentenced to ten years, the others are also serving prison terms, the shortest being four years. The terror cell was founded in eastern Germany and has been accused of firebombing two refugee homes and an office and car belonging to the left wing, pro immigration Die Linke party. The aim of the attacks was to “generate a climate of fear and repression.” More than one million asylum seekers and refugees arrived in Germany in 2015 alone, many of them fleeing war in Syria.
