"Nazi", "son of a bitch", "child murderer": Brutal attack of presumably Afghans on German soldiers in the town of Bad Hersfeld

After the attack on two soldiers of the Bundeswehr in the town of Bad Hersfeld, the State Security Commissioner of the police headquarters in East Hesse has started the investigation. The officers are now looking for witnesses to the incident. Last Wednesday morning, around 6:00 a.m., the 19-year-old victim in uniform was on foot in the street "Eisfeld". He was waiting for a comrade with whom he wanted to go to work together. On the way he met three men who insulted him with the words "Nazi", "son of a bitch" and "child murderer". Besides, the three spat on him. To confront him, the injured man stopped, whereupon the men suddenly hit him in the face, so that he went to the ground. Lying on the ground, they stepped on him. Fortunately, his comrade came to his aid at that moment. He succeeded in pulling an accused away from the victim lying on the ground, who immediately fled to Antoniengasse street. One of the other two perpetrators tried to punch the person providing help in the face, the other hit him in the back with his fist, then both fled in the same direction. After the brutal attack on two Bundeswehr soldiers, the state police is investigating first clues to the perpetrator trio, but still has no hot leads. In addition, a police spokesman specified the description of the perpetrators at the request of the newspaper HNA: the two Bundeswehr soldiers are said to have testified that the attackers could have been Afghans. In their call to witnesses, the police first reported perpetrators with "very brown skin".
