German police launched a raid on a migrant shelter Thursday where three days ago 150 asylum seekers clashed with police and prevented the deportation of a 23-year-old man from Togo.The confrontation, which police described as "extremely aggressive and violent", has prompted some far-right and conservative politicians to say the arrival of more than 1.6 million migrants since 2014 has led to a collapse of law and order.Police in the southern town of Ellwangen had on Monday night released the man they wanted to deport, identified by media as Yussif O., saying they wanted to avoid an escalation.Police also declined to provide further details of Thursday's early morning raid on the shelter, which it said is home to about 500 people seeking asylum.Right-wing politicians jumped on the clashes.
