Eleven Suspected Neo-Nazis Arrested in France; Police Raid 8 Parts of France, Seize Rifles, Guns

France's interior minister said today (April 1, 2016) that 11 suspected members of a neo-Nazi group have been arrested, according to the AP website.

The members of the group -- who allegedly were spreading racist messages -- were arrested yesterday in an investigation of "criminal association" and "participation to a combatant group," Bernard Cazeneuve said today in a written statement.

Cazeneuve said 11 rifles, two guns, 28 knives, some bullet-proof vests and helmets, and several Nazi flags were among the items seized during the police raids in eight regions of France.

The statement added that the three "most active members" of the group were brought before a judge today to be charged.
