German prosecutors said on Wednesday they had charged four people with setting up a far-right organization that planned to carry out attacks on ultra-conservative Islamists and refugees.
The three German men and a woman, aged between 57 and 23, started up a cell, known by the English name of Oldschool Society, in late 2014 and planned to carry out arson and nail-bomb attacks in May 2015, prosecutors said in a statement.
The target was a shelter housing asylum seekers, near the town of Borna, some 30 km (19 miles) from the eastern city of Leipzig. The attack never took place.
"At a first meeting of the group in mid-November 2014 it was discussed how to manufacture explosives as well as attacks against Salafists (ultra-conservative Islamists) and asylum seekers," the statement said.
