In a football/soccer tournament to promote “integration” of migrants, twenty people (almost certainly migrants) “stormed the sports facility with punch and stabbing weapons”.


There were tumultuous arguments on Friday evening during a football tournament in the Aller-Weser-Halle in Verden. About twenty people stormed the sports facility with punch and stabbing weapons.

The hall hosted a municipal recreational football tournament to integrate refugees. Due to unsportsmanlike and aggressive behavior, the organizer had to exclude some players with a migration background, who have lived longer in Verden, from the tournament. The police writes in a press release.
