Hamburg has officially lost control now. Berlin is sending half their Police Forces to Hamburg, which leaves Berlin vulnerable.
Joachim Nikolaus Steinhöfel comments:
Berlin sends their “Hundertschaften” to Hamburg. Berlin police is now hastily sending the 12., 14. and 35. Hundertschaft to Hamburg. This leaves Berlin half bled-out of their forces. A high police commander tells Welt: „We can only hope that the rumors will vanish into thin air, according to which international left extremists plan to attack the capital parallel. There have been hints at this for quite some time now.”
