Police in Germany have detained two men suspected of an arson attack early Sunday against a newspaper that republished the cartoons of French weekly Charlie Hebdo.
The newspaper Hamburger Morgenpost said on its website the overnight arson attack destroyed several files in its archive, but didn’t injure anyone.
Hamburg police said it had detained the two young men near the newspaper building.
Police spokeswoman Karina Sadowsky told The Associated Press several stones and a Molotov cocktail were found in the newspaper’s archive in the basement of the building.
She didn’t identify or give any further details about the suspects.
A spokesman for the Hamburg fire department said they were first alerted when a security company called them after the building’s fire alarms went off, shortly after 2 a.m.
