African mob in German town prevent a deportation

About 200 African asylum seekers have forcibly prevented the deportation of an African in Ellwangen, Baden-Württemberg. They pushed and threatened the police so violently that the police had to break off their operation, according to the news agency DPA.

    Three patrol cars had gone to the Asylum Detention Centre [Landeserstaufnahmeeinrichtung (LEA)] on Monday night to deport a 23-year-old African man to his homeland. After being handcuffed and taken to one of the emergency vehicles, the police were surrounded and threatened by the Africans.

    “They were so aggressive and threatened us more and more openly, so that we had to leave the man (…) behind and retreat to the LEA guard,” a policeman described the stand-off. The Africans had beaten against the three patrol cars and they damaged the vehicles.

    It was first reported by the German news agency that the African was from Congo.

    Reinforcement for the police had not been in the vicinity. Possible police reinforcements would have taken several hours to arrive. For security reasons, the local police therefore gave up the planned deportation and entrenched themselves in the shelter of the asylum shelter.

    After some time a security employee of the holding reception center was sent by the Africans to the police with an ultimatum. The officers were told to relieve the African within two minutes, otherwise the rioters would storm the gate.

    The police then gave the security man the key to the handcuffs. According to the report, the Congolese individual has since disappeared.
