German authorities plan to forward videos and photos of suspected Hamburg G20 rioters to their counterparts in southern Europe. Damages from the street battles between protesters and police could surpass €12 million.
Police in Italy, Spain, France and Switzerland have searched several addresses in connection with three nights of violence that accompanied last July's G20 summit. The "Black Bloc" task force has made a first arrest.
Conservative German politicians have condemned the publication of photos of 54 police officers accused of brutality. The police previously provoked anger by releasing photos of "black block" rioters at the G20 summit.
