Far-right vigilantes removed from Polish border - Germany

More than 50 far-right vigilantes armed with items including pepper spray, a bayonet, a machete and batons were attempting to patrol the Polish-German border in order to stop the influx of migrants into Germany, the German police announced on Sunday.

According to the announcement, the police removed the group from the border area, confiscating their weapons. It is reported the vigilantes came from different parts of Germany, responding to a call from The Third Path, a far-right German party suspected to have ties with neo-Nazi groups.

"Hundreds of officers are currently on duty there day and night. If necessary, I am prepared to reinforce them even further," German Minister of the Interior, Horst Seehofer, told German media about the 800 police officers stationed at the border to prevent migrants from coming in through Poland.
