Ongoing probes - Hate crime suspects' residences investigated.

To counter online hate and provocation, the residences of six suspects in Rhineland-Palatinate were raided by investigators. These actions were taken due to suspicions of promoting hatred, distributing propaganda from foreign terrorist groups, slander, using symbols associated with unconstitutional organizations, and condoning illegal activities, according to the Rhineland-Palatinate Criminal Investigation Office (LKA) and Koblenz's General Public Prosecution Office.

The searches in Rhineland-Palatinate were conducted in the following municipalities: Rhein-Mosel, Alzey-Land, Neuwied, Landau-in-the-Palatinate, Bad Bergzabern, and Trier. Some of the seized items included mobile phones and other data storage devices. The investigators are now working to analyze this evidence.

These searches in Rhineland-Palatinate were part of a nationwide effort to crack down on hateful online content. Over 70 apartments were searched throughout Germany on Thursday, many suspects were questioned, and there were more than 130 police operations in total across all federal states, the Federal Criminal Police Office reported.
