After an attack on the building in which the left-leaning daily newspaper “nd” is located, state security is investigating at the Berlin State Criminal Police Office (LKA). This was announced by the authority on Tuesday night via Twitter. In the afternoon, two people argued with the employees in front of the newspaper’s office in Friedrichshain.
“They insulted them, even with reference to Corona. The front door was damaged,” the police tweet said. A police spokesman had previously announced that he was investigating the assault and looking for two people.
The newspaper previously tweeted: “Several people were trying to force their way into the building, throwing beer bottles and physically assaulting one person. Police suspect he has a far-right background.”

According to the editorial director and executive director of the new nd cooperative, Rouzbeh Taheri, two unknown men tried to enter the building. They were prevented from doing so. They would have kicked in the lobby door. Words like “lying press” were said. “But no one was injured. There was only property damage,” Taheri told the German Press Agency. (dpa)
