SHARE 94 GERMAN POLICE HURT IN BATTLE WITH PUNKS

Police called in hundreds of reinforcements Saturday after 94 of them were wounded by flying bottles and stones in an all-night battle with young anarchists.

Six hundred and thirty people were arrested on the second straight night of violence during "Chaos Days" in Hanover, the punks' summertime gathering to wreak havoc.There were no figures on the number of injuries among the punks, but ARD national television showed one being kicked repeatedly by police, who also hurled stones back at their assailants.

A police spokeswoman said the kicking incident would be investigated to decide on possible disciplinary action, but said it occurred against a background of massive assaults on the police.
