Four suspects were arrested on Wednesday during a series of raids against the German chapter of a right-wing extremist group known as Blood & Honor, police and prosecutors said.

Fifteen raids were conducted across five states on the basis of a criminal investigation against 14 alleged members of the group, which has existed in Germany since 2000.

The group is accused of importing and distributing right-wing extremist music and merchandise, the Munich prosecutor's office and Lower Bavaria's police force said.

Blood & Honor is a neo-Nazi music promotion network and political group founded in Britain in the late 1980s. The group organizes white-supremacist concerts and distributes a magazine.
