Emergency services were deployed to Bonn's central station on Saturday night after clashes between "left-wing and right-wing groups," police told German news agency dpa.

The western German city's station was temporarily closed, with roads blocked and rail traffic suspended in both directions.

Police said some people fell down onto the train tracks during the scuffles, but that no one had been injured.

The violence followed an annual demonstration by neo-Nazi activists in Remagen, about 23 kilometers (14 miles) south of Bonn. Police said around 130 people had taken part in the afternoon event, while up to 900 others had joined a counterdemonstration.

The fighting broke out at around 6 p.m. local time (1700 UTC) when a train carrying a number of protesters pulled into Bonn.

Authorities said they had launched investigations into serious breaches of the peace, among other charges.

Hamburg: Thousands protest against animal testing

Hamburg: Thousands protest against animal testing

Around 13,000 people attended a demonstration in the German city of Hamburg on Saturday to call an end to animal testing.

The protesters were aimed predominantly at the Labaratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology, a company that has been accused of abusing dogs and monkeys.

Its lab is based at Mienenbuettel, near Hamburg.

"There is room for every animal. The civilian population will not allow these animals to be sold off and killed," said Friedrich Mueller, a member of SOKO Tierschutz, an animal protection group that co-organized the demonstration.

One activist obtained video footage of screaming monkeys and dogs covered in blood after he accessed the facility while posing as an employee.

It is not yet clear whether the LPT lab will be shut down. The local authorities say they do not yet have sufficient grounds to do so.

German woman suspected of IS ties arrested after deportation from Turkey

German woman suspected of IS ties arrested after deportation from Turkey

A woman of German nationality suspected of having ties to the Islamic State (IS) group was detained as soon as she landed in Germany after being expelled from Turkey, prosecutors said Saturday.

The woman, known only as Nasim A., was expelled from Turkey with another woman and was detained at Frankfurt airport on Friday, the federal prosecutor's office said.

Turkey began deporting foreign jihadists on Monday and has criticised Western countries for refusing to repatriate their citizens who left to join IS in Syria and Iraq.

The Federal Prosecutor accuses Nasim A of having gone to Syria in late 2014 to live on IS territory.

She married an IS fighter in early 2015 and later settled in Iraq.

The woman is said to have taken care of the household and received around USD 100 a month in cash so her husband could be available for the jihadist group. She owned a Kalashnikov assault rifle.

The couple later went to back to Syria, where she was arrested in early 2019 by Kurdish security forces.

She was on Saturday to appear before the Federal Court which could issue a formal arrest warrant and order her detention on remand.

Turkey on Thursday also deported a man with suspected radical Islamist connections and his family to Germany.

Berlin city authorities said the man was arrested on arrival.
