More than 500 women were assaulted and robbed by mobs of immigrants, mostly North African men in the German city during last year's New Year's Eve celebrations.

Video also shows fireworks being repeatedly fired into groups of people with many of them exploding at the feet of the police officers trying to control the 2,000-strong crowd.

Harrowing cries of a girl shouting: 'No! You cannot touch me!', can be heard at the beginning of the new footage which was filmed by specially-trained police officials.

An 18-year-old had an abortion after she was raped in the mass sexual frenzy at Cologne train station on New Year's Eve.

She was thrown around a group of men before eventually falling on the floor, where she was raped alongside another girl.

'She told me that a few metres away she saw another girl lying on the ground, also being raped.

'She had tried to signal to the other girl that she should close her eyes, but the man then grabbed her own head and forced her to look at him.'


Newly-released footage from the New Year's Eve sex attacks in Cologne show how powerless the vastly-outnumbered police were in handling the out-of-control crowd.

More than 500 women were assaulted and robbed by mobs of immigrant, mostly North African men in the German city during last year's New Year's Eve celebrations.

Harrowing cries of a girl shouting: 'No! You cannot touch me!', can be heard at the beginning of the new footage which was filmed by specially-trained police officials.

The footage also shows fireworks being repeatedly fired into groups of people with many of them exploding at the feet of the police officers trying to control the 2,000-strong crowd.

Revellers pay little or no attention to instructions from police officers who can be heard expressing their frustration at their inability to deal with the mob and one police officer can be heard complaining, 'I'm standing here all by myself'.

Police in Cologne this week revealed that 1,500 officers - ten times as many as last year - will be on duty this New Year's Eve to avoid a repetition of last year's events.

They are also planning helicopter surveillance of revellers, limiting the number of people in certain areas and deploying police officers trained in investigating sexual assault.

Meanwhile, one teenage victim of last year's sex attacks, who was named only as Lisa S, 18, has spoken publicly about her ordeal for the first time.

Lisa, from Bavaria, was on her way to the New Year's Eve celebrations in the city's cathedral square with her two cousins when they were assaulted.

She said: 'We were immediately grabbed in our genital area from all sides, my dress was raised.

'My cousin was grabbed by her arm as they tried to pull her away.

'We tried to defend ourselves but we had no chance, as soon as we could escape one of them groping us, we were again groped by others.

After they managed to escape, the three cousins spoke to the first policeman they saw but he told them he was busy and could not help, Lisa said.

In total, 1,222 criminal complaints were investigated by the authorities in Cologne, of which 513 involved an accusation of sexual assault.

These included sexual coercion, rape and sexually motivated insults.

So far only 35 of the accused men have appeared in court with a total of 24 found guilty.

Six of the 24 cases are still pending appeals, while 18 sentences have been made final.

Of these, just three related to sexual assaults.

Cologne was not the only German city were sex attackers escaped from prosecution after out-of-control New Year's celebrations.

In Hamburg, 245 investigations into sex attacks resulted in only four accusations and one prosecution, according to prosecutor Nana Frombach.

Frombach indicated the number of attacked women was 410 at last year's celebrations in the city.

Similar incidents were reported in Frankfurt.

Rape is an awful thing. From a personal life experience, think that's one crime we need to make sure there are no repeat offenders, ever. And I only know of one way to ensure that. With today's DNA type evidince, found guilty, should be the last day they breath.

Done deal

I'm sorry for what happened to these victims

Thats what happens when they start to accept all these people without any proper planning for integration. There is also a high chance of a number of them being economic migrants than true refugees. The way the Syrian crisis was handled is a total mess. Rape should never be forgivable but can be fairly common in those places with different cultural and religious ideologies. Just take India for example where rape is so prevalent.
