Police in Berlin made over one hundred arrests on Wednesday as thousands of people demonstrated a new law imposing night-time curfews on Covid hotspots.

Violent clashes broke out after police ended a demonstration with some 8,000 participants in central Berlin due to participants not abiding by social distancing regulations.

Video from the scene shows angry protesters trying to break through a police barricade before being pushed back by riot police using pepper spray. Nearby, police rushed into crowds who had gathered in an adjacent park and pulled people out.

Berlin police confirmed that 152 people had been arrested by the late afternoon.
