    German police on Thursday raided a funeral parlour and 18 other Berlin locations linked to a gang suspected of using dead people's passports to smuggle illegal immigrants into EU countries.

    Some 120 federal and state police took part in the coordinated dawn raids to collect evidence on charges of document forgery and human trafficking, said a police spokesperson.

    No arrests were made, but police confiscated a briefcase filled with German and other countries' passports as well as documents and computers from the 19 businesses and homes in the German capital.
