An Iranian economic migrant in Hamburg, Germany might just have become a genuine refugee after converting to Christianity.
The Iranian national, 24, was left “seriously injured” after being set upon by an Afghan migrant on Sunday in a refugee camp in Hamburg-Eidelstedt, Die Welt reports. Police said the man was beaten with a telescopic baton, with the Afghan responsible declaring that conversion was a “sin.”
The Iranian is thought to have told some Afghan migrants a few days prior to the attack that he had embraced Christianity once in Germany.
The young Iranian man was left unconscious, and 15 to 20 people stepped in to pull the attacker away and protect the convert.
The State Protection Department in the Office of Criminal Investigation is reported to be looking into the incident.
Earlier in the month Breitbart London reported on the first comprehensive social and scientific study on violence in migrant centres in Germany has revealed that conflict is part of “everyday life” for inhabitants and is likely to increase.
The “ultimate and primary cause” was ethnic and religious tensions, researchers said.
Researcher also identified widespread drug and alcohol use as contributing to domestic violence, which was identified in every facility investigated.
“Violent behaviour and aggressive verbal confrontations, threats or insults and serious damage to property were very commonly reported, indicating they are part of everyday life in the hired accommodation,” wrote researchers, who interviewed home managers, employees and randomly selected residents in almost all collective accommodation in Brandenburg.
Clashes at a migrant camp near the central German city of Kassel on left 14 people injured, including three policeman, on septemper 28th.
On October 7th, in a single day, around three hundred migrants brawled in a migrant centre in Braunschweig; Algerians fought Syrians in violence purportedly sparked by a theft.
