16 cars arsoned

Hamburg, the 28 of October 2009

„We can not surveille 700.000 cars“ declares police spokeperson Ralf Meyer.
The line of arson on cars reched a new level.
Within one and half hour the fire brigade had to extinguish 14 cars.
The police discovered as well fire devices under four other cars which did not went off.
Until now there has been 152 cars arsoned this year in Hamburg.

Nobody got arrested and the police do not believe a political motivation behind the acts (note: the police use normally this term when arsons are damaging mostly not really expensive cars so as it was in this case).
