BERLIN (AA) - German authorities said Thursday they found heavy military weapons during searches at the Berlin apartment of a former far-left terrorist.

Police found various ammunition and firearms, including a Kalashnikov rifle, a submachine gun and a rocket-propelled grenade, the Bild newspaper reported, citing security sources.

Daniela Klette, a senior figure of the Red Army Faction (RAF), was arrested in the Kreuzberg district Monday, after being on the run for 30 years.

The 65-year-old belonged to the third generation of RAF members and was accused of attempted murder, involvement in several attacks and robberies of cash-in-transit vehicles between 1999 and 2016.

She was placed on Europe's Most Wanted list in 2020, together with two other former RAF members, Burkhard Garweg and Ernst-Volker Staub. Authorities believe the trio robbed supermarkets and cash-in-transit trucks to finance their life underground.

RAF was founded in 1970 and was responsible for dozens of assassinations, kidnappings and bomb attacks, targeting businessmen, state officials and US soldiers.

The group announced its self-dissolution in 1998.
