Former RAF members wanted: Pictures of the SEK operation in Berlin

Several people were arrested in Berlin in connection with the search for the two fugitive ex-RAF terrorists. Shots were fired by emergency services, said a spokeswoman for the Lower Saxony State Criminal Police Office. There were no injuries. Those arrested were not the wanted ex-RAF terrorists Ernst-Volker Staub and Burkhard Garweg.

The Federal Criminal Police Office and the Berlin police were also involved in the operation. The operation began around 7:30 a.m. in a commercial area on the corner of Markgrafendamm and Persiusstrasse. The spokeswoman initially did not provide any further details.

Like Daniela Klette, who was arrested in Berlin on Monday, Staub and Garweg belonged to the third generation of the former left-wing extremist terrorist organization Red Army Faction. During their active time, the then Deutsche Bank boss Alfred Herrhausen (1989) and Treuhand boss Detlev Karsten Rohwedder (1991) were murdered and Herrhausen’s driver was seriously injured.

For decades, the RAF was the epitome of terror and murder in the west of still divided Germany. In 1998 it declared itself dissolved. Burdock, Staub and Garweg were or are also wanted for a series of later cash-in-transit robberies.
