CNN, Wednesday 6th January 2016
Cologne’s mayor, Henriette Reker, has come under fire for advising women to stay “an arm’s length” from male strangers after alleged sexual assaults and muggings during New Year’s Eve festivities in the German city. Some of the perpetrators of the sex attacks claimed they were Syrian refugees, with one telling police “you have to treat me kindly! Mrs Merkel invited me”, according to a leaked report.
