Smoke on the water: Hamburg under siege for G20

Smoke on the water: Hamburg under siege for G20Anti-capitalist protesters wreaked havoc Friday in the G20 summit’s host city of Hamburg, torching cars, firing flares at police choppers and blocking US First Lady Melania Trump at her residence. Hamburg police were also forced to call in reinforcements from other parts of Germany, as Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned the violence wrought by demonstrators as “unacceptable”. Merkel said she could understand peaceful protests, but demonstrations that “put peoples’ lives in danger, put the protesters’ own lives in danger… are unacceptable”.
