FRANKFURT AM MAIN: A flashmob gathering in central Frankfurt descended into chaos with teenagers hurling stones at police officers, German authorities said Sunday.
A group of 600 youths had gathered on Saturday evening at the popular shopping street Zeil which they began running through "without any consideration for pedestrians", police said in a statement.
Police therefore issued the flashmob organiser with a dispersal notice, but an officer was then suddenly punched in the face by a 17-year-old youth. As officers detained the teen, some among the crowd began throwing stones at police. Three officers were hit, with one suffering light injuries. The other two were unscathed.
