The German government Monday condemned the "cold-hearted and cowardly" mob that tried to stop a bus from taking migrants to a shelter for asylum seekers, calling the ugly episode "deeply shameful". About 100 people in the Saxony town of Clausnitz shouted "We are the people" and tried to block the bus carrying about 20 asylum seekers on Thursday night. "I want to say on behalf of the chancellor and the entire government that what happened in Clausnitz is deeply shameful," said Angela Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert.
