German police stopped and questioned hundreds of people of North African decent during the New Year celebrations Cologne, the city that saw many sexual assaults the same time a year ago.
On 2016 New Year’s Eve, hundreds of women in Cologne were robbed, threatened and sexually assaulted by small groups of aggressive men, mostly of Arab and North African origin. A total of 333 suspects have been identified with 87 being accused of sexual assault.
