A well-known member of Germany’s far-left Linke party was smashed in the face with a chocolate cream pie on Friday by a member of an “anti-fascist” group protesting against her stance on refugees.

Sahra Wagenknecht, who has advocated putting a limit on the number of refugees Germany should accept, got smacked with the pie while she was sitting in the front row during the opening speech at a party congress. A young man stopped in front of her and threw the creamy pie in her face. The man who threw the pie was swiftly taken away by security and he offered no resistance. A young woman later said they belonged to a group called the “Anti-fascist Initiative, pies against the enemies of mankind”, which was outraged by Ms Wagenknecht’s refugee policy.
