The video shared on Friday, shows a group of men blocking a bus full of refugees as they entered the town of Clausnitz.

The video shows the mob shouting “we are the people” and “go home” at the bus of refugees, which include women and children. The video goes on to show the image of a boy who weeps as he looks at the crowd.

There were 30 officers on the scene to keep the two groups apart according to the police in Saxony.

“We were able to prevent it coming to physical confrontations or injuries,” they wrote, noting 13 possible infractions against the law on free assembly.

They added, “The terrible images and video reached us this morning via social media. As the police we have to remain neutral during our deployments.

“That is difficult for us in this situation. We are all people in blue uniforms, who feel just the same as you when we watch the video.”

Many have condemned the video on social media.

TV comedian Jan Böhmermann tweeted: “Clausnitz (Saxony) yesterday. The German mob greets those who escaped the jaws of death.”

    Localites have every right to be upset. Its their tax money which goes to keep refugees and their own women are facing threat from these refugees. Europe is doomed for sure and Merkel will pay a heavy price for it.Recommend

    Good move by German locals . The refugees have to get sterilised and get a lesson in manners before considering for asylum. Recommend

    A huge influx of people from a very different culture, different religion, different values ,is going to be difficult.

    Pray for peace in Syria so they can go back to their homeland.Recommend

    Germany is one country that has really done the most for the refugees, but there is a limit to everything. The EU must impress upon the rich Arab States to do their bit in accommodating a certain percentage of these refugees. After all they speak the same language, are ethnically Arabs having the same culture and common customs. Saudia Arabia teaches and poses to be the guardian of Islam and they must be understanding that Islam teaches humanity, so what are we waiting for. SA has the money and resources and plenty of land.Recommend
