Frankfurt [Germany], June 19 (Sputnik/ANI): At least five police officers were injured in Frankfurt early on Sunday as violence erupted at an outdoor party, media reported.
According to local news portal Hessenschau, clashes began at about 3:00 a.m. (01:00 GMT) in the city's centre where police were deployed to ensure compliance with coronavirus restrictions at an open-air party that included, at that time, about 500 people.
