German police want MP probed over anti-Muslim tweetGerman police have asked prosecutors to investigate a far-right lawmaker for possible incitement to hatred after she criticized a police force for tweeting in Arabic "to appease the barbaric, Muslim, rapist hoards of men". Police in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia posted a New Year's Eve greeting in Arabic as well as German, English and French. AfD leaders reacted angrily to Twitter's decision to delete the two postings under a new law passed by Parliament in June that authorizes fines of up to 50 million euros against social media networks if they don't promptly remove hateful content.
