    Police in the city of Nordhausen, where the incident took place, have launched an investigation into the matter. The disgruntled man's motives remain unclear.

    A 24-year-old asylum seeker from Afghanistan ravaged a supermarket in Nordhausen, Thuringia in central Germany, on Thursday afternoon destroying hundreds of alcohol bottles at a supermarket.

    In a video from security cameras, the man was seen walking along an aisle with liquor bottles before he started violently knocking the bottles on the floor.

    Personnel at the store then asked customers to evacuate the market's premises for security reasons.

    The man was later detained by the police outside the grocery store and they took him to a nearby hospital because he appeared "unstable".

    According to the police, the asylum seeker attempted to set the liquor on fire after he broke the bottles.

    The damage incurred by the man's actions is estimated to be 1,000 euros, the police added.
