STUTTGART, GERMANY - German state security agencies are reporting an increase to neo-Nazi violence, a newspaper reported Friday.

The state Offices for the Protection of the Constitution reported that Germany witnessed an average of 2.5 extreme-right offences daily, the Stuttgarter Zeitung said in a story for its Saturday edition.

Sources told the paper that radical groups find most of their recruits at concerts where skinhead music is played.

While violent attacks increased, the far-right movement in Germany was stable at about 40,000 members, the report said.

The paper said the agencies believed the far-right Nationalist Democratic Party (NPD) might surpass the minimum 5 per cent of votes needed to win seats in state elections in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania in September.
