Vita Vea Jersey

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday condemned a near fatal knife attack against a town mayor Dallas Keuchel Astros Jersey , apparently motivated by the local leader's pro-refugee stance and which left him with a six-inch neck wound.


Andreas Hollstein, 54, mayor of the western town of Altena, was stabbed Monday evening at a kebab shop by a man who had loudly criticized his liberal refugee policy.

Merkel, who has faced a strong backlash over her welcoming stance toward refugees, was "horrified" by the attack on Hollstein and "very relieved that he was already able to return to his family," her spokesman Steffen Seibert tweeted. "Thanks also to those who helped him."


Hollstein, a member of Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) Carlos Correa Astros Jersey , said that he believed "a coarsening of the public debate about refugees" had led to the assault.


"I even received e-mails today approving of the attack - that says something about the state of our country," he said, adding that he and his family had received repeated threats in recent years.


Hollstein said the attacker appeared to be under the influence of alcohol but was by no means incapacitated, noting it had taken three men to overpower him.


The assailant was arrested at the scene while Hollstein was taken to a local hospital and, after treatment Nolan Ryan Astros Jersey , released hours later, police said in a statement, referring to an "apparent xenophobic motive."


The town of about 17,000 people was well known for taking in a larger share of asylum seekers than required amid the mass influx that has brought more than one million migrants and refugees to Germany since 2015.
