Far-right thugs injure 44 officers in Cologne clash
Police deployed water cannon and tear gas against an anti-Salafist demonstration by thousands of hooligans and far-right supporters in central Cologne when it descended into violence on Sunday.
Police said that 17 people were arrested during the course of the day, while 45 were injured - 44 of them police officers.
Organizers had originally given notice of a 1,500-strong protest march against Islamic fundamentalism to the police under the banner of the group "Hooligans against Salafists".
