Spy chief says right-wing radicalism spreads in GermanyThe head of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency said on Tuesday that militant right-wingers were mixing with less radical conservatives, blurring the lines to make extremism more acceptable and harder to detect. Speaking less than three weeks after a man who had published a racist and anti-Semitic manifesto shot two people near a synagogue in Halle, Thomas Haldenwang added that lone attackers were also an increasing threat. “The proverbial ‘right wing corner’ which allows for a clear distinction between extremists and the conservative camp, no longer exists,” said President of the BfV domestic intelligence agency Haldenwang in a parliamentary hearing.
