Co-Leader of Germany’s right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) Alexander Gauland said that the attack on the AfD's Bundestag member Frank Magnitz was a result of the party's “marginalisation,” while speaking to reporters in Berlin on Tuesday.
«We see that it is the result of our marginalisation. We are not treated as a democratic party,» Gauland said, adding «and as a result of this, gang... Еще members believe that they can take power into their own hands and physically attack democratically elected parties and parliamentarians.»
According to reports, Frank Magnitz was seriously injured by three masked men who allegedly attacked him with a piece of wood and kicked him in the head after he fell to the ground.
Commenting on the party member's condition, Gauland said: «His condition is stable. His injuries will not have long-term consequences. He is fine, considering the circumstances.»
