Investigators believe a Molotov cocktail thrown at the Reichstag building in Berlin early on Monday morning was the work of a "far-right" group, a police spokeswoman said.

The link to political extremism means that the case will now be handed over to the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), Germany's domestic security agency. A flyer from a "neo-Nazi" group was found at the Paul-Löbe-Allee entrance to the parliament building where a Molotov cocktail was thrown at around 2am.

Investigators are examining similarities with an attack on the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) headquarters near Berlin's Tiergarten on August 25th, the Berliner Morgenpost reported.

As in the Reichstag attack, a bottle filled with flammable liquid was thrown at the entrance but burned itself out without the fire spreading or injuring anyone.
