Die Tageszeitung, Jan. 6
"The Outcry" is the front-page headline for German daily Die Tageszeitung on Wednesday, alongside a blurry picture of a group of men next to the Cologne Cathedral on New Year's Eve, as a spate of alleged sexual assaults and robberies is fueling renewed debate over immigration in Germany.
Hundreds of people, mostly women, demonstrated in Cologne Tuesday night after more than 90 crimes — including a rape — were reported around the train station and cathedral area during the end-of-year festivities.
The perpetrators were described by eyewitnesses and victims as gangs of "North African or Arab origin," as Germany is facing a political crisis over the issue of migrants and refugees who arrived in record numbers last year.
