GERMANY: VIDEO REPORTEDLY SHOWS MIGRANTS ASSAULTING GUARDS AT REFUGEE CENTRE WITH IRON BARS AND KNIVES, ONE IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION
On February 17, the German Presseportal reported that a violent incident had taken place at a refugee centre in Staufen, a small town in the South of Germany:
“As the first investigations revealed, three residents of Syrian nationality, aged 19 and 21, had had an altercation with two security guards. The Syrian nationals used iron rods and a knife. In the course of the dispute, the 19-year-old is said to have attacked the 27- and 29-year-old guards – both Turkish nationals – with the knife. Both guards suffered injuries. The 27-year-old cannot be excluded of involvement.
A total of 5 people were injured, two of them by rods or bars. One of the injured persons is in critical condition.”
The Badische Zeitung suggests the guards and residents might have had prior disputes and that they belonged to rival ethnic groups, being Syrian and Turkish.
Today, the video above emerged, with the Daily Star Sunday claiming it shows footage of the attack that was reported on earlier.
Official sources have yet to confirm or deny this video does indeed portray the Staufen incident.
