Dozens of refugees, police clash in German city of Dresden

Two police officers and a security guard were injured when fighting broke out at a migrant reception center in the eastern city of Dresden. There are a growing number of standoffs between asylum seekers and authorities.

Around 50 refugees attacked police after they attempted to stop a fight at a migrant center, authorities in the eastern German city of Dresden said.

Police were called after security guards struggled to contain a dispute about food between two migrants from Georgia on Friday evening.

“As a result, about 50 residents gathered and attacked officers by throwing lit cigarettes, then kicking and beating them,” a statement from Dresden police said.
