German police foil neo-Nazi model airplane bomb plan

BERLIN- German police have thwarted plans by neo-Nazis to attach makeshift bombs to model airplanes and target a gathering of their political opponents, prosecutors in the southern city of Freiburg said on Tuesday.
Police seized explosives, detonators and several model airplanes while searching the flats of four suspects and a neo-Nazi venue outside Freiburg last week, they said in a statement.
The suspected ringleader of the plot, an unnamed 23-year-old man, was arrested. Last month he was caught throwing a firecracker at a demonstration by anti-fascist groups against a far-right protest in the western city of Dortmund.
Police said they also found chemicals, narcotics and a video camera at the sites.
