German Police Conducting Operation Against Criminal Clans in 6 Cities - Reports

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 13th January, 2019) German police are conducting a large-scale operation against criminal clans in six cities of the country, the Rheinische Post newspaper reported on Saturday.

According to the newspaper, the operation began on Saturday evening in the cities of Bochum, Duisburg, Essen, Recklinghausen, Dortmund and Gelsenkirchen.

As many as 1,300 police officers are involved in it, with customs officers also taking part, the publication said.

The police conduct searches, in particular, in shisha bars owned by these criminal clans, considering these places to be "hotbeds of dirty deeds." In the Federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the influence of such clans is particularly strong, the newspaper noted.
