“During police questioning, the man admitted that he had set [a] fire in the cellar of the multi-use building,” police spokesman Achim Hansen told NBC News, adding that the refugee had also stated that he “had a lack of hope for the future.”
The 26-year-old refugee sprayed three swastikas on the exterior in the building, located in the town of Bingen, in an effort to make it seem like the fire was started by far-right protesters.
A total of 26 people were inside the building when the fire was started on Thursday. Two firefighters and four residents suffered minor injuries as a result of the blaze.
