German Newspaper Says Employee Attacked by Far-right Group

Monday, 14 January 2019 06:39 AM

BERLIN (AP) — A German newspaper says one of its employees has been attacked by members of a far-right group.

The left-wing taz daily said the woman was grabbed by the neck after confronting six black-clad people who were piling cobblestones and attempting to put up posters in front of the newspaper's Berlin offices.

Berlin police confirmed that a woman was attacked during the incident. Spokesman Heidi Vogt said police were still investigating who was behind the incident, but the far-right group Identitarian Movement tweeted photos of members putting up posters in front of the building.

German media reported that the group also targeted other media buildings and left-wing politicians' offices.

The Identitarian Movement is close to the far-right Alternative for Germany party, whose lawmaker Frank Magnitz was attacked last week.
