GERMANY has been embroiled in violent riots today as tens of thousands of anti-immigration demonstrators swarmed the streets to protest Angela Merkel’s migrant policy after a citizen stabbed to death by two migrants.

More than 1,200 police officers were drafted in as a deadly clash between the far-right and far-left after a 35-year-old German man was butchered six days ago in an attack that sent shockwaves up and down the EU member state.

Demonstrations on both sides took place in the eastern city of Chemnitz, known as Karl-Marx-Stadt under its former Communist rule, where the deceased, known only as Daniel H, was murdered by Syrian and Iraqi suspects.

Today’s protests came after details of the shocking killing were leaked to a far-right group including the names of the suspects, according to reports from German newspapers.

Leftist demonstrators waving placards with ‘Heart not Hate’ scrawled on them gathered by a bust of the socialist – the location where protestors had clashed with police days before.

Hours later, right-wingers flooded the streets to mourn the murder victim.

A supporter of the left, who refused to give her name, asked: “Who was the stabbing victim?

“He far-right is exploiting his death by saying ‘A German has been murdered’.

“But he was an anti-fascist and people outside the city don’t know that.”

German police have not released full details of the stabbing while an investigation into the leak is taking place.

Though two suspects have been detained.

Angry right-wing protesters clashed with riot police protecting migrants who were being chased by skin heads raising their arms in a Hitler-style salute, a painful reminder of Germany’s disturbing past during Nazi rule.

Officers were also seen being wrestled to the ground by members of the far-right PEGIDA group.
