The number of police officers that during the violent protests around the G20 summit in Hamburg has been injured, is significantly smaller than previously assumed.

The police in the German city left Sunday to know that at least 476 agents injuries. It turns out Friday to ‘just’ 231 agents, almost half less.

The reason for the difference is the time frame that the police in Hamburg was held. The 476 injured police officers are the result of a count between 22 June and 10 July, and had a politiewoordvoerder know.

The number of agents injured during the summit, a count which runs from 7 to 9 July, was a lot lower, namely, 231 agents.

The previous census also gave a high result because, under the injury also dehydration, problems in the blood circulation and such ‘disorders’ have been defined. Many agents felt they were not good because of the warm weather during the summit.
