Cologne tightens security for carnival after sex attacks

Refugees from Syria present flowers to passers-by as they demonstrate against violence near the Cologne main train stationCologne hosts its annual carnival from Thursday with beefed-up security to prevent a repeat of the sex assaults that marred New Year’s festivities and ignited a debate about Germany’s ability to integrate asylum seekers. All eyes are now on the week-long event which begins Thursday with “Weiberfastnacht”, roughly translated “Women’s carnival day”, when thousands of female revellers in fancy dress take to the streets, and are invited to cut the ties of men as a symbol of clipping their power. Among those on show is one of a lonely Chancellor Angela Merkel surveying the EU, while in the background, refugees drown.
