Violent protests against the G20 summit in Hamburg continued for the second night with rioters attacking police, erecting barricades and trashing shops and vehicles.

At least 143 people have been detained and over 200 police officers injured so far.

Black Bloc demonstrators were armed with Molotov cocktails and iron bars, police said in a press statement.

“At the interception Schanzenviertel district [in central Hamburg], the forces were permanently subjected to violent attacks,” the statement added.

“We have never experienced this level of hate and violence,” Hamburg police spokesman Timo Zill told the Bild tabloid.

The protesters damaged shops and vehicles, police said, adding that some 500 people looted a supermarket on Friday night during ongoing protests. (source)
