Piles of wreckage, burned-out barricades and broken glass all around – Hamburg now looks like a battle field rather than the host city of a G20 summit, based on photos and videos. The city is bracing for another wave of protests.

The sidewalk has been damaged and the city services are currently removing bottles and broken glass from the streets.

“The violence yesterday evening was awful. And I also don’t understand the message they’re trying to send. It is violence. It is simply tragic,” one resident told RT.

Photos and videos on social media show the city streets filled with broken glass and the remnants of barricades.

“What was clear from the very beginning was that the police did nothing. The officers gathered in small groups. Generally, you could say it was incompetence,” another city resident said.
