German police arrest suspect in neo-Nazi probe

BERLIN - German police arrested a man on Tuesday they suspect of assisting in six murders and one attempted murder committed by a neo-Nazi cell uncovered this month, a case that has highlighted Germany's failure to eradicate right-wing extremism.
Prosecutors said the 36-year-old suspect was arrested in Jena, a city in the eastern state of Thuringia where the cell was based.
Investigators believe the cell, which called itself the "Nationalist Socialist Underground," has killed eight Turks, a Greek and a 22-year-old police woman since 2000. The cell is also suspected of two bomb attacks and 14 bank robberies across the country, prosecutors say.
