German Town Bans Syrian Refugee Men From Public Pool
The ban at a pool in Bornheim, Germany, comes after women complained of sexual harassment.
A German town has banned Syrian refugee men from visiting the public swimming pool after several women complained of sexual harassment.
No charges have been filed, but Bornheim officials say they're trying to send a message. Officials tell Deutsche Welle social workers will help decide when the ban should be lifted.
There are about 800 refugees in the city and more than 1.1 million in Germany as a whole.
This incident comes after a series of sexual assaults and robberies on New Year's Eve in Cologne, Germany — about 17 miles from Bornheim. Officials say the suspects include migrants.
