BERLIN (HPD) — Germany is investigating an attack on a pro-democracy vigil outside the Iranian embassy in Berlin in which three people were injured early Sunday.
An officer watched as three masked men lowered banners and flags hung on a mobile home that was parked near the embassy, police said.
Despite the officer’s calls to stop, the suspects opened the mobile home’s door and attacked four men inside, the force said in a statement.
Three of the occupants were injured in the fight, it added. The assailants fled in a vehicle.
The dpa news agency reported that the mobile home carried signs reading “Iranians want democracy” and “Women, Life, Freedom,” a slogan used in recent marches in Iran.
Marches in solidarity with Iranian protesters have taken place in Germany and other European countries.
