Hundreds of people flooded the streets of the Saxon city of Chemnitz on August 26 following the death of a German man, who was allegedly killed in a fight with immigrants during a festival. While right-leaning activists are calling for new demonstrations online, and the local police are preparing themselves for a new wave of anti-migrant marches.

The District court of Chemnitz has issued an arrest warrant for a 23-year-old Syrian and a 22-year-old Iraqi who are suspected of killing a 35-year-old German man in the early hours of August 26, which triggered anti-migrant protests in Chemnitz. The city attorney’s office has requested to arrest the suspects, who reportedly stabbed the man to death without any justification following a verbal dispute on Sunday night.They were detained on August 26 by the police, who are looking into motives and circumstances of the crime, according to the previously issued statement.

According to the media reports, the victim, Daniel Hillig, was stabbed some 25 times and died in hospital. He’s said to have been a local resident of German-Cuban origin, who was a trained carpenter.

Two of his friends were also seriously injured and admitted to hospital. The authorities earlier called the incident a “dispute between several people of different nationalities.” The police were initially reluctant to release information about the suspects, including their nationality.

The brawl occurred during the city fest. Information has been circulating online that the Germans tried to stand up for a woman who was being harassed. However, the police reported on Twitter, the investigation had found “no indications” yet that the conflict was preceded by harassment and called on people not to spread the speculations.
