Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Covid-19: Thousands of antivax protesters clash with police in Leipzig, Germany” – below is their description.

Disorder broke out after 1,000 people began marching in the eastern city of Leipzig yesterday, with 24 arrests understood to have been made.

Over 3,000 coronavirus deniers had originally pledged to take part in the rally in the city – the largest in Saxony – before authorities set a cap on 1,000 people. But by morning, this number had already been reached and police struggled to control the crowds in the city centre. A video shows the protest – which had been peaceful up to a point – become gradually more tense with angry shouts from the crowd.
