German authorities raided homes and religious schools connected to two radical Islamist groups with suspected terrorist links on Tuesday morning, the Interior Ministry said.
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.
