Far-right mob violence targeting immigrants in the German city of Chemnitz has again cast an ugly spotlight on the country's ex-communist east as a hotbed of xenophobic sentiments.Extremist hooligans have been venting their anger at foreigners, hunting some in the streets, since a German man was stabbed to death in the early hours of Sunday, allegedly by an Iraqi and a Syrian who were arrested Monday.The state of Saxony, where Chemnitz is located, has been especially a center of resentful opposition against Chancellor Angela Merkel and her 2015 decision to keep open German borders to a mass influx of migrants and refugees.It was the disenchanted right-wing extremist skinhead youth culture that, in the eastern state of Thuringia, spawned three neo-Nazis whose bloody crimes, when they finally emerged in 2011, would shock Germany.
