MUNICH: Three mosques in Germany were evacuated after their staff received e-mails purportedly from a far-right group, which threatened to kill Muslim worshippers,  according to local media reports.

Police beefed up the security and launched a search operation inside the two mosques in Pasing and Freimann districts of Munich, but nothing suspicious was found. 

In another incident, a mosque in Iserlohn city received a similar email claiming that bombs were planted inside the place of worship. However, the threat turned out to be a hoax.

Working on the call, police evacuated the mosque after searching inside the premises with bomb-sniffing dogs while investigations are underway.

Germany,  in recent years, has witnessed a growing number of hate attacks against Muslims triggered by the propaganda of far-right parties.
