German authorities raided homes and religious schools connected to two radical Islamist groups with suspected terrorist links on Tuesday morning, the Interior Ministry said.
Prosecutors on Monday opened a criminal investigation into the deaths of 20 young adults who were trampled to death at the Love Parade, as experts accused the techno festival's organizers of ignoring Germany's exemplary safety standards and setting up a death trap.
The raids, in the western cities of Moenchengladbach, Braunschweig and Bremen, were aimed at the Salafist groups Invitation to Paradise and Islamic Culture Center Bremen, ministry spokesman Stefan Paris said in a statement.
The groups are suspected of "wanting to create an Islamic theocracy and working against the democratic order of Germany," he added.
