Berlin police station petrol bombed
A Berlin police station petrol bombed early Monday in an incident that appeared to be a prelude to the city's annual May 1 riots by radical leftists and anarchists, DPA reported.
One of the petrol bombs exploded inside the front doorway. The tyres of a police car were damaged by barbs strewn on the road by the attackers who fled.
The station commander was injured while trying to catch one of the six unidentified attackers, but no one else was hurt.
The station is in the Friedrichshain neighbourhood, close to streets dominated by leftists. May Day battles with police have been an annual fixture in the city for more than two decades.
