Cologne police now say fewer North Africans ID'd on New Year's Eve
Cologne police set off a storm of controversy when they tweeted that hundreds of "Nafris" - North Africans - were stopped during New Year's Eve celebrations. But a new report paints a different picture.
Cologne's police force said on Friday that in fact, most of the more than 650 men stopped by officers on New Year's were from Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan, and only a small portion came from North Africa.
Their original report after New Year's Eve was that most were from North Africa.
