Connewitzer Kreuz: Police Officers Attacked With Firecrackers and Rocks

January 1, 2018

Leipzig — During Silvester night rioters at Connewitzer Kreuz in Leipzig hurled firecrackers and rocks at police officers. Police warned the attackers over loudspeakers, Leipzig police said Monday morning. As the attackers still resisted, police deployed water cannons against them. Several people were arrested for severely breaching the peace of the land. Police are investigating.

About 1,000 people had congregated at Connewitzer Kreuz before midnight. After they had set trash cans and several items on fire, police moved in with water cannons to extinguish the fires.

Upon this, between 40 and 50 persons hurled bottles, rocks and firecrackers at the vehicles and the officers. The operation went on until about 1:30 early Monday morning. (dpa)

  1. well, i’m glad some bad stuff happened, as nutty as that sounds– otherwise, we right wingers just don’t have a case!

    • Well – I’m saddened that bad stuff happened, even if I, as a right-winger, expected it. Your comment feels nutty, I agree. Even with a peaceful New Year’s celebration this year – my political views would not have changed because they are built on principles and facts. I would indeed still have the case for the total stop of any immigration from muslim/african countries into Europe, even repatriating criminal immigrants, their family and more.

      With that, I rest my case when it comes to your comment. I wish you a good 2018.
