German authorities on Wednesday said they searched dozens of homes of alleged Muslim extremists across the country and detained three people.

A spokesman for the State Office of Criminal Investigation of Baden-Wuerttemberg, Horst Haug, told the Associated Press that 43 homes were searched in several cities across the country on Wednesday.

Seven people in total are suspected of recruiting for extremist Muslim groups and three of them had been detained, Huag said. The other four are currently in Egypt and Saudi-Arabia.

The prosecutor's office in Stuttgart accuses the seven men, who are between 24- and 59-years-old, of getting more than 100 people in Germany to attend an Egyptian Koranic school known to recruit for terror camps.
