The riots surrounding the G20 summit in Hamburg have an estimated 12 million euros in damages resulted. That have German insurers estimated.

About a third of that amount is damage to cars. The rest are damages that were caused to homes and businesses.

During the summit a week and a half ago there were three days of riots in the streets of the North-German port city. Anti-G20 activists cast at various places barricades.

They lit cars on fire, looted several shops and bekogelden the police with stones and bottles. In the confrontations between protesters and the police were 231 police officers injured. How many campaigners injury occurred is not known.
