The Dortmund asylum seeker reception centre was the scene of the brawl where over a dozen migrants attacked each other, the entire incident caught on film. The injuries sustained by several of the migrants involved in the fight led to hospitalisations and authorities struggle to determine a motive for the violence, reports Hamburger Morgenpost.
According to reports the incident took place in the reception area of the Dortmund Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) where most asylum seekers are registered in order to determine their eligibility for asylum in Germany. Authorities are currently trying to determine the cause of the incident. Police have confirmed that they arrested three migrants aged 14, 15, and 20, though they added that the suspects were immediately released from custody shortly afterwards.
Massive brawls in migrant homes are a common occurrence, but are rarely caught on video. In Germany violence at asylum homes has become a persistent issue with migrants fighting each other over religious conflict and ethnic tensions. In September of last year a mass brawl in the German capital of Berlin led to several injuries, and Breitbart London has documented multiple mass brawls and violent attacks across European asylum homes.
