Germany raids far-right group over alleged plot to overthrow German government

German police have arrested 25 members and supporters of a far-right organisation that they say was plotting to overthrow the state and install an alternative government led by a German aristocrat.

Bavaria’s interior minister called the group one of the “largest terrorist organisations” to come from the far-right in recent years. Prosecutors say the group was inspired by conspiracy theories including QAnon, which was also championed by some of those involved in the storming of the US Capitol in 2021.
