Two more German cities report New Year's sexual assaults by "north African" groups

Similar incidents as the ones in Cologne took place in Stuttgart and Hamburg, with two and nine incidents, respectively. All three cities report the same profile of large groups groping women to distract them in order to steal their purses, but police say there are no indications of the events being related.

“There were lots of girls, all crying uncontrollably,” an anonymous victim said of the atmosphere inside the train station in Cologne, according to Deutsche Welle.
