Eighteen asylum seekers in Germany arrested in connection with the New Year’s Eve sexual assaults

Eighteen asylum seekers in Germany have been arrested in connection with the sexual assaults against over one hundred woman at a bus depot on New Year’s Eve in the city of Cologne.

 

Authorities said that at least one male as young as sixteen has been detained and that at least thirty one people have been identified as playing a role in the horrific attacks.

 

Chancellor Angela Merkel has called for tougher penalties against offending asylum seekers citing that those who have been sentenced to prison or probation should be ineligible for asylum.
