German police raid homes of suspected extremists

German police say they have raided the homes of several alleged Islamic extremists suspected of raising funds to support possible violent attacks.
Police and prosecutors in the southwestern German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg said 30 officers on Wednesday carried out raids on three apartments in the cities of Ulm and Bonn. They seized computers and documents, but made no arrests.
They said the suspects _ a 29-year-old German of Syrian descent and a 27-year-old German convert to Islam _ are known to be active in the local Islamist scene and have been under investigation since June 2010.
German police in April arrested three suspected al-Qaida members in the western city of Duesseldorf allegedly working on making a shrapnel-laden bomb to attack a crowded place.
