A German court on Tuesday approved warrant for the arrest of a third suspect in the case of the killing of a man in the city of Chemnitz in the German region of Saxony, a prosecutor general of the region said.
"The administrative court of Chemnitz today in the morning granted a request for the arrest warrant," a Hans Strobl said, as quoted by the MDR broadcaster.
The search for the suspect is ongoing.
According to local media reports, the third suspect could be an Iraqi citizen, who arrived in Germany in 2015 as a refugee.
A 35-year-old German citizen Daniel Hillig was stabbed to death in a fight on August 26. His death led to several rallies in Chemnitz. On August 27, two rallies were held in the center of Chemnitz, an anti-Nazi gathering and a protest organized by Pro Chemnitz movement. A number of right-wing radicals were demanding that all undocumented migrants be deported.
Since 2015 Germany took in several million refugees, mostly — from Africa and the Middle East, as part of an "open-door policy" amid the European migration crisis. The policy prompted huge discontent amid different groups of people.
