A black British man was hospitalized in Hamburg after being assaulted by three supporters of a German far-right party, according to German police. They said the 46-year-old man was with his wife and 4-year-old son at a bakery stand Saturday when the men approached him and handed him a flyer for the National Democratic Party. The man ripped the pamphlet up and the men then pushed the Briton against a glass window, according to police. One man punched him while another sprayed pepper spray in his eyes. Three suspects were apprehended later and prosecutors are now investigating them on suspicion of causing bodily harm. The British man was treated in a hospital and released.
