On New Year's Eve, scores of women reported being assaulted, and some raped, by groups of men during a series of attacks in the city of Cologne. The attacks sparked anti-migration protests and protests by women's rights groups calling for greater protections.

In response, the German government tightened laws governing foreigners committing crimes.
