Germany: 200 police storm refugee centre in Baden-Wurttemberg

Germany, Ellwangen
May 3, 2018 at 06:51 GMT -00:00 · Published

More than 200 police officers with about 70 vehicles stormed the LEA refugee centre in the German city of Ellwangen, Baden-Wurttemberg in the early hours of Thursday morning. They came as backup following a botched effort to detain and then deport one of the migrants living at the centre. Officers sought to complete their failed mission at the LEA centre. The area was cordoned off and paramedics and emergency physicians were also on site. On Monday night, police searched the refugee centre and detained a 23-year-old Togolese man who was wanted for deportation. Reports say that at first an estimated 50 refugees showed their solidarity with the man. Witnesses say the number soon grew to around 150-200 as the centre's residents united against the police, surrounding patrol cars and forcing the officers to eventually release the detainee.
