BERLIN (Sputnik) — The East German town of Bautzen was rocked by scuffles between some 20 young asylum seekers and around 80 locals mostly from far-right political groups, local media reported on Thursday.
The criminal police are investigating the case over violation of public order and infliction of bodily injuries.
Bautzen has seen a wave of clashes between migrants and local citizens over the past months. On Tuesday a 32-year old German national was injured by a refugee who hit him with a bottle. In February, a refugee shelter under construction was set ablaze with locals trying to prevent firefighting.
