On Tuesday evening, between 400 and 600 Germans attended a silent march for the teenage girl who was stabbed to death by an allegedly only 15-year-old Afghan refugee in the town of Kandel.
About 30 leftists protested and attacked the mourners. They waited at the drugstore where the murder took place, and when the march arrived, held up rainbow-striped umbrellas, to protest “for a colorful Germany”. Shuffling and poking with umbrellas ensued. Police removed the leftists.
The local press reported that the march was “far right”, but local police refuted that and pointed out that it was “ordinary citizens”. According to police, as the march went on, more and more passers-by joined in.
