German police on Monday arrested six men on suspicion of belonging to a right-wing "terrorist" group that attacked foreigners in the city of Chemnitz.

As reported by AP, German men between the ages of 20 and 31 were detained on suspicion of forming a group called the "Kimants Revolution" with the aim of sabotage.

"The group aims to launch violent and armed attacks against foreigners and people with different political views," the federal prosecutor said in a statement. 

Among the targets were representatives from various political parties and members of economic institutions, she said. He said the group was apparently planning an attack during German Unity Day celebrations on Wednesday.
