A New Year's mass was held on Monday in St. Pius Church in Kandel to commemorate the teenage girl stabbed to death in the town last week. The event was attended by around 350 people, including politicians like Rhineland-Palatinate SPD member Alexander Schweizer and CDU parliamentary group leader Julia Klöckner. «I believe that in time of grief it is hard to make hasty political statements. It... Еще is also hard to yield now to that particular group of people who have appeared here, for example people from AfD, and provide blanket judgements about foreigners. I think it is false, but we also should not be naïve,» said Klöckner. «Those who violate laws, harm other people, must face the full consequences of our laws, of our constitutional state,» she added. The 15-year-old died in hospital after being attacked with a kitchen knife outside a drugstore on Wednesday. The suspect, a 15-year-old Afghan refugee and former boyfriend of the victim, was taken into police custody on suspicion of manslaughter.
