Germans attack Turkish shops after Euro 2008

3 million Turks living in Germany crushed by semi-final loss

German police said on Thursday that vandals had attacked two Turkish kebab shops in the eastern city of Dresden shortly after Germany’s Euro 2008 victory over Turkey, injuring several people.

“I can confirm that two shops were attacked … and that several people were injured,” police spokesman Thomas Herbst told AFP.

A press report said that members of a group of 30-50 people had smashed windows and caused other damage to the shops after the semi-final football match while a small crowd of people looked on.

No other incidents were reported in the country with the game passing off peacefully between Turkey and Germany, home to almost three million Turks and people of Turkish descent, the country’s biggest minority.

Dresden is in the economically depressed former communist East Germany, where attacks on foreigners are often reported and where far-right groups enjoy some support.
