Demonstrators chanting “we are the people” surrounded a bus carrying asylum seekers as it arrived at a shelter in a German village and tried to prevent them from getting off.
Saxony police said a group of around 100 people prevented the bus from arriving at the asylum shelter, and three vehicles were used to block the entrance to it.
The slogan which the protesters chanted, “Wir sind das Volk” (We are the People) is used by the patriotic protest group PEGIDA.
The police have come in for criticism for their handling of events, particularly after a second video emerged on Friday evening showing what appeared to be police handling the same child – a boy in a blue jacket – roughly and dragging him into the accommodation as the crowd jeers and yells.
Unfortunately, the event passed without further violence.
