Germany has asked EU members to help trace demonstrators who vandalized property or attacked police at the Hamburg G20 summit, Eurasia Diary reports.

In a letter sent Monday, German Justice Minister Heiko Maas asked EU counterparts to accelerate Germany’s requests for assistance in connection with G20 protests, which saw shops looted,street battles between police and demonstrators, and cars and barricades set on fire in central Hamburg. Maas also urged his fellow justice ministers to implement EU arrest warrants issued by Germany.
