+++ Hooligans rage in Berlin-Mitte +++
A group of about 15 to 20 hooded persons rioted in Mitte on Saturday. According to the police, residents living along Linienstraße alerted the police around 10 pm. The group threw paint bags and stones against house facades and shop windows. In addition, the group is said to have smashed the windows of at least eleven parked cars. The group, which had also lit smoke torches, is said to have fled via Gormannstrasse in the direction of Torstrasse. According to witnesses, the hooded men are said to have chanted slogans during their attacks. On Sunday morning, the police were initially unable to say what background the rioting was due to. Further investigations into the particularly serious case of the breach of the peace have been taken over by the State Security of the State Office of Criminal Investigation.
