An 18-year-old migrant has been seriously injured in a stabbing in an asylum centre in the Bavarian town of Abensberg.
The 18-year-old Sierra Leonean was heard arguing loudly with a 19-year-old Somali before the Somali pulled a knife and stabbed the younger man several times. Local news website idowa reports the Sierra Leonean had to be flown by rescue helicopter to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment.
The Somali man suffered minor injuries and has been detained by police. The cause of the argument has not yet been established.
Germany has seen a number instances of migrant violence over the past few weeks.
Breitbart London reported last week how a football match organised between a school and a team of migrants descended into violence after Syrian and African asylum seekers started fighting amongst themselves over a substitution. A 23-year-old man ended up in hospital with head injuries.
In another fight, police had to use pepper spray in an asylum centre in the city of Duisberg to restrain two drunk asylum seekers, while in Bavaria a Senegalese migrant needed hospital treatment for an inch-long head wound after arguing with another Senegalese man.
Meanwhile, 30-year-old woman was reportedly attacked by two asylum seekers aged 23 and 24 who dragged her into some bushes and hit her. The two men fled the scene but were later arrested.
Reiner Wendt, the chief of the German police federation, said last month that information about violence in asylum centres was being withheld to scare the public.
He warned of “widespread prepared and organised mass brawls and fights” due to “proper power struggles between different groups who have different ethnic and religious backgrounds.”
Separating migrants on religious grounds, however, was not the answer, because “we must not forget: in the home countries, most victims of Islamists are not Christians, but Muslims,” he added.
