STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Stockholm police say they've ferreted out a large cache of arms and explosives stored by a neo-Nazi group.
The raids were carried out by the Nova Group, a police unit formed to deal with organized crime, the news agency TT reported. The homes of members of the Swedish Resistance Movement, known by the initials SMR, or their parents were searched last week.
"There was so much that we had to evacuate a building in the western suburbs," a police spokesman, Ulf Goranzon, said.
Police made a total of six arrests. Three alleged members of SMR, men ages 18, 21 and 28, were ordered held pending a hearing.
