Ghanaian racially atacked in Germany

Late Friday evening, a man from Ghana were assaulted and racially abused in by suspected right-wing extremist in Braunschweig, Germany.

Two men were questioned in the western city on Monday after a 49-year-old Ghanaian was beaten up in what police said might have been a racially motivated attack or a drug-related incident.

Police said one of those involved had links to the right-wing scene.

In another incident on Friday evening, a mob of about 40 young men went on the rampage at a fair in the eastern town of Buetzow, smashing stalls and pelting police with bottles. Police said members of local right-wing groups were involved in the rampage, which also targeted a snack bar operated by a Pakistani who has lived in the town since 2002.
