I hadn’t realized until this morning the scale of the anti- G-8 riots in German. Staggering and saddening.
Germany’s worst riots in decades erupted on Saturday, leaving almost a thousand people injured and overshadowing Berlin’s preparations for this week’s Group of Eight wealthy nations’ summit.
A spokesman for the security forces said on Sunday that approximately 430 police officers were injured in the violent street battles between militant activists and heavily-armed police in Rostock, north-eastern Germany. 125 arrests were made, police said.
