The State Criminal Police (LKA) in Mainz Germany reported Thursday, several arrests in connection with a right-wing terror group plotting to overthrow the German government and create “a civil war-like” situation.

According to the police force, the right-wing terror group was called Vereinte Patrioten (German for United Patriots). 

The group used a group chat to plan a series of bombing attacks in the country, including Germany’s energy infrastructure, to topple the German government. 

Investigators in the western German state of Rhineland-Palatinate said they had arrested four members of a right-wing extremist chat group.

The investigators said that those arrested were German nationals linked to the COVID-denier protest scene and the “Reichsbürger” movement.
