Weekend of Violence towards Asylum Seekers in Germany

By  Monday, 2.11.2015, 20:28    General News

This past weekend there were several violent attacks on asylum seekers in Germany. None of them had serious consequences, but the number of reported incidents is increasing. Most of the violence reported, happened in the East of the country. There have also been arsons at sites where the sheltering of refugees and migrants is planned and in front of a flat where a refugee family lives. Powerful bangers also led to broken windows at some asylum seekers dormitories.  

On Sunday (November 1) in Meerane (Saxony), some 200 asylum opponents and right-wing extremists gathered at the train station of the small town, to prevent a group of refugees and migrants to continue their journey to refugee shelters. They attacked the police with bangers. Three were arrested.

In a number of incidents the attackers were moving in groups of 20 and more and attacked single or small groups of asylum seekers with fists and bats.
