A German journalist was attacked by PKK terror group followers Sunday during a rally organized by the group's sympathizers in Berlin as he was covering the event.
Journalist Martin Lejeune was reportedly attacked by three men showing him a knife and attempted to hit him. The journalist, who said he has received threats from PKK followers recently, reportedly escaped the attack by running into a restaurant.
Speaking to Daily Sabah, the German journalist said the event was approved by the authorities, and protected by the police, despite the PKK being recognized as a terror group by the EU."The protesters were happy and even though it has not been 24 hours since the terrorist attack in Istanbul, the PKK protesters were celebrating," he said and added: "I was out with two of my friends and wanted to film and document how the supporters of terror and the PKK, which is actually officially banned in Germany, can freely demonstrate. I wanted to show what is possible (for terrorists) in Germany."
