BERLIN (AP) — The German government says it has banned a leftist-terrorist newspaper published by the Turkish extremist group DHKP-C and conducted raids across the country in connection with the ban.

Germany's interior ministry said in a statement Wednesday that it has searched several locations in Berlin and other parts of the country. It did not mention any arrests.

The government said the party that published the Yuruyus newspaper was already banned in Germany in 1998.

According to the government, the paper promotes suicide bombings as an indispensable means of class struggle to change Turkey's society.
