Mourners and a pro-diversity group rioted in the town of Kandel this week during a vigil dedicated to a 15-year-old girl who was stabbed to death by an Afghan asylum seeker.
Approximately 400 mourners met at the grocery shop where the 15-year-old was stabbed to death and engaged in a silent march through the town centre. Another 30 pro-diversity activists held a vigil at the scene of the murder and when the groups met violence erupted, Die Welt reports.
Police spokesman Thomas Sommerrock said the pro-diversity group wanted to show their support for a “colourful Germany” and held up multicoloured umbrellas during their vigil.
“It was a very emotional mood. The silent marchers found it out of place to demonstrate in the current situation for this purpose,” he added.
