German police megaphone used in anti-Israel rant
by Kirsten Grieshaber
German police allowed an anti-Israel protester to climb inside a police car and shout slogans including "child murderer Israel" and "Allahu akbar!" — Arabic for "God is Great!" — through a police megaphone, a spokeswoman for Frankfurt's police said Sunday.
Police let the protester use the megaphone during a Free Gaza demonstration Saturday because he had offered to calm down a protest that had turned violent, spokeswoman Virginie Wegner told The Associated Press.
"We as police had come up spontaneously with this unusual method and he abused it — we didn't expect that," Wegner said, adding that police were investigating the incident. "Police are neutral during protests."
