A memorial tree planted to remember the first victim of far-right terrorist group NSU has been destroyed by suspected neo-Nazis, authorities said on Friday.



German Chancellor Angela Merkels spokesmanSteffen Seibert strongly condemned the attack and called for a full investigation into the crime.



The killing spree of the NSU, which has been undetectedovera long periodof time, is really a shame for Germany,Seibert said during a regular press conference in Berlin.



Remembering victims of this killing spreeWe owe this to the victims, their families but also to ourselves.to our struggle for democracy and pluralism in our country, he stressed.



The memorial tree for Enver Simsek, the NSUs first victim, was planted last month in the eastern town of Zwickau, where the terrorist groups three members lived from 2000-2011.


The shadowy neo-Nazi group killed at least eight Turkish immigrants, a Greek worker, and a German policewoman in a seven-year period from 2000-2007.

The German public first learned about the groups existence in 2011, when two of its members died during a bank robbery attempt.


Until 2011, Germanys police and intelligence services ruled out any racial motive for the murders and instead treated immigrant families as suspects in the case and even harassed them for alleged connections with mafia groups and drug traffickers.
