Germany has banned the sale of fireworks for this New Year's Eve. Might this be a chance to look for more sustainable alternatives to pyrotechnics?
On New Year's Eve 2015, hundreds of women were mobbed and sexually assaulted during celebrations in the western German city of Cologne. German politics and society were forever changed.
More than 30 people were injured in the blast, which took place at a factory in Tamil Nadu state. Police are still investigating the cause of the explosion.
German leaders' failure to ban New Year's Eve fireworks shows the coronavirus pandemic response is not evidence-based, argues DW's Joel Dullroy.
