Fire set at entrance to G20 venue

German police say fires have been set at an entrance to the trade fair grounds in Hamburg, which are to host a meeting of foreign ministers next month and the Group of 20 summit in July, reports AP.

Hamburg police said witnesses reported fires late Saturday. Officers found that several garbage containers, a motorcycle, tyres and part of the glass front of the entrance had been set ablaze, while stones had been thrown at the windows.

Police said Sunday that witnesses reported that around 30 to 50 people, most of them masked, were responsible. They fled before officers arrived.

Foreign ministers from the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe will meet at the venue next month. A claim of responsibility was posted online under the handle "noOSCE noG20."
