Dresden: 'Veil martyr' memorial desecrated

Via The Local:

Vandals have attacked an art project erected in honour of a pregnant Egyptian woman who was murdered in a German court room, organisers said Friday.

The Citizen.Courage group, which sponsored the display in the eastern city of Dresden, said that a few knife-shaped columns used in the open-air show had been knocked over several times and signs explaining the project were stolen.

"Citizen.Courage assumes this was a malicious, politically motivated attempt to destroy the project," group chairman Christian Demuth said in statement.

"To warn against everyday racism, we will not restore the destroyed installations. But we will continue the project."

A police spokeswoman said authorities had opened an investigation.
