According to the police, emergency services were massively attacked during the demonstration against the Corona policy on Wednesday in Berlin, APA reports citing DW.
There were 77 injured police officers and 365 arrests, the police reported on Thursday evening in a preliminary balance sheet on the protests in Berlin-Mitte.
“The potential and brutality of the violence on Wednesday was immense. Individual voices have said that we have not seen anything like that in Berlin for decades,” said police chief Barbara Slowik.
Since the demonstrators violated the hygiene requirements in view of the corona pandemic, the police ordered the meeting to be dissolved. Finally, water cannons were used several times because, according to the police, the participants did not want to leave.
