ERLIN - German police on Wednesday arrested two people in raids against a far-right group suspected of using an Internet portal to incite violence against foreigners, spread Nazi propaganda and deny the Holocaust, the public prosecutor general said.

About 60 policemen and investigators took part in the operation, which involved searching properties in four German states and one location in Spain, prosecutors said in a statement.

They suspect Jutta V., 47, and Ralph Thomas K., 27, of being the leaders of a criminal organization that operated "Altermedia Deutschland", where Internet users can subscribe and take part in forum discussions that appear to focus on race.
