German city bans new refugees after two Muslim migrant assaults on non-Muslims
An eastern German city has imposed a temporary ban on new refugees in an effort to stem a number of recent violent incidents.
Cottbus, about 120 kilometres southeast of Berlin, has been rocked by violence from refugees and right-wing extremists since the start of this year.
Earlier this week, Brandenburg state police reported that two male Syrian teenagers were arrested under the suspicion of injuring a German teenager in the face with a knife.
The 16-year-old sustained non life-threatening injuries in what started as an altercation between Syrian and German school acquaintances near a tram station.
The incident happened just days after a group of three Syrian asylum seekers, aged 14, 15 and 17 years old, attacked a man and his wife outside a shopping centre, according to a police statement. The 15-year-old was handed a negative residency permit? by authorities, effectively ordering him and his father to leave the city.
