Germany: AfD party congress starts in Stuttgart despite demonstrations by usual suspects

The party congress of the right-wing Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) in the German city of Stuttgart started on Saturday after a one-hour delay, amid protests by about 1,000 left-wing demonstrators.

The protesters tried to block the entry to the venue of the party congress, shouting slogans such as: “Keep refugees, drive Nazis away!” and “We’ll get you all.”
