German police in nationwide raids against climate activists

(ANSA-AFP) - BERLIN, MAY 24 - German police on Wednesday carried out raids across seven states targeting climate activists of the "Letzte Generation" (Last Generation) group, which has sparked controversy with protesters glueing themselves to roads to block traffic. The raids were ordered in an investigation targeting seven people aged 22 to 38 over suspicions of "forming or supporting a criminal organisation", said a joint statement by Bavaria's police and prosecutors. Fifteen properties were searched, two accounts seized and an asset freeze ordered. The suspects are accused of "organising a donations campaign to finance further criminal acts" for the group via its website. (ANSA-AFP).
