Scuffles erupted between scores of anti-lockdown protesters and police officers as coronavirus sceptics and counter-demonstrators took to the street of Leipzig on Saturday.
Police officers can be seen facing off with crowds of anti-lockdown protesters before a scuffle broke out. Police were seen using pepper spray.
The protest was reportedly cancelled after demonstrators began to gather in the city centre. Up to 1,000 protesters per rally are permitted to gather at one time, due to the coronavirus restrictions.
After Germany experienced record increases in the number of coronavirus cases in October, the country entered a month-long partial lockdown on November 2, with restaurants limited to takeaway service only. Theatres, cinemas, and public recreation centres, including swimming pools, gyms, and saunas are to stay closed, while new restrictions have been put in place to limit social contact.
