Three Migrants Hurt in Cologne Payback Attacks; Migrants Abused 600 Women on New Year's Eve

Two Pakistanis and a Syrian man were injured in reprisal attacks in the German city of Cologne, which was the scene of hundreds of New Year's Eve attacks on women by migrant men, the Euro News website reports today (January 11, 2016).

A regional parliamentary commission in the state of North-Rhine Westphalia is planning to question police and others about the events on New Year's Eve.

Authorities say the events of that night led to more than 600 complaints -- on attacks allegedly committed by migrants who recently took refuge in Germany from Africa and Asia -- ranging from sexual assault on women to theft.

The violence has led to vigorous debate about Germany's migrant policy and to demonstrations by women's rights groups and the German anti-Islam political movement PEGIDA (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West).
