Cologne, on edge since sex assaults, beefs up carnival security

Police patrol near the main train station and cathedral in Cologne, Germany, on January 6, 2016, where dozens of apparently coordinated sexual assaults were perpetred against women on New Year's EveCologne is on high alert ahead of its giant carnival festivities since a shocking spate of sexual assaults, with German authorities anxious to prevent a repeat of the rampage and ward off potential jihadist attacks. Around 1,000 complaints have been filed over the crime spree that has also ignited an intense debate about Germany’s ability to integrate 1.1 million asylum seekers it took in last year. The carnival festivities kick off on Thursday with street parties — a week-long binge of beer, song and dance by revellers in fancy dress — and run through Ash Wednesday on February 10.
