German authorities banned a group Tuesday accused of raising money for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah and staged raids across the country on homes and offices used by the organization."The name of the group masks its actual purpose," Interior Ministry state secretary Emily Haber said in a statement.She added that the organization based in the western city of Essen had raised 3.3 million euros ($4.5 million) in donations between 2007 and 2013 for the Lebanese Shahid Foundation, which she said was an "integral" part of Hezbollah's work. Authorities say that there are around 1,000 supporters of Hezbollah currently living in Germany.
