Ex-police chief asks Cologne attack victims for forgiveness
The Cologne police chief who had to stand down in the wake of sexual assaults over New Year's Eve has spoken of his regret at the events.
Speaking on Monday to the committee investigating the events of New Year's Eve in downtown Cologne, Wolfgang Albers said that the fact that his force had not been able to adequately protect women who fell victim to sexual assaults moved him to this day, Die Welt reports.
Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker sacked Albers in early January after accusing the police force of concealing "politically sensitive" information from her and from the public in the wake of mass sexual assaults on hundreds of women.
