Germany has outlawed Hammerskins, a neo-Nazi group known for its role in organising far-right concerts and selling racist music.

The move set “a clear signal against racism and antisemitism”, Germany’s interior minister said.

The authorities raided the residences of 28 leading members of the group across the country.

Hammerskins, founded in the US in the late 1980s, is thought to have about 130 members in Germany.
