The World

October 02, 1985

About 2,000 people went on a rampage of window-smashing and arson in Frankfurt, West Germany, after a mass rally against neo-Nazism. Hundreds of riot police fought running battles with the rioters, and 65 were arrested and at least five injured. It was the fourth day of protests by leftists over a meeting in Frankfurt of the neo-Nazi National Democratic Party. Violence intensified and spread to other West German cities after protesters became enraged over the death of a demonstrator who was run over by a police vehicle on Saturday.
