In a forest near Seevetal, workers discovered a terrestrial bunker with a barrel. Possible remnants of the Red Army faction (RAF). Lower Saxon LKA determined.

After an initial assessment of the written material found, a reference to the RAF cannot be ruled out, LKA announced on Saturday. It is believed that the underground warehouse was created decades ago. According to the spokesperson, the age of the found objects indicates this. The documents are therefore from the 1980s. LKA currently assumes that the finding does not provide any evidence of the whereabouts of three former RAF members Ernst Volker Staub, Burkhard Garweg and Daniela Klette, who hid. The RAF disintegrated in 1998.
