Almost 100 people were involved in a fight between Yazidi Kurds and Muslims in Celle, Lower Saxony, on Monday night, with six hurt. Elsewhere in Germany, hundreds of Kurds took to the streets to protest against the Islamic State (Isis).
The two groups, 30 Muslims and 60 Yazidi, set upon each other with their fists and feet and any objects they found to hand in the Neuenhäusen area of the city, the Cellesche Zeitung reported.
More than 50 police officers were deployed to separate the two groups after they were alerted to the running battle at 5.30pm, a police spokesman told The Local. No-one beyond the two groups was involved or hurt in the fight.
