Suspicious mail to AfD politician Björn Höcke


eA suspicious mailing to the Thuringian AfD parliamentary group leader Björn Höcke on Wednesday caused a greater deployment of rescue workers at the Thuringian state parliament and a partial closure of the building. The shipment was received on Tuesday at Höcke's private home address and opened in the morning in the state parliament, said a police spokeswoman. A suspicious substance was discovered. Police, fire brigade, ambulance and emergency doctor arrived with several vehicles. It can already be ruled out that it is explosives, it said.

However, further tests at the State Criminal Police Office and the State Office for Consumer Protection were still underway, it said. It is still unclear whether there was a concrete danger. Nobody got hurt.

People who came into contact with the suspect shipment had been decontaminated. According to initial information, Höcke himself had taken the broadcast into the state parliament. The police initially did not give any further information, the politician should be interviewed later in the day.

The state parliament was not cleared, but parts of the building could not be accessed via the usual entrances. The work in the state parliament was not affected. The partial closure of the building initially continued at noon.
