German police say unidentified assailants apparently started a fire at a Turkish restaurant in an eastern city that saw violent anti-migrant protests recently.
Saxony state police said residents were woken up by a loud bang at the restaurant in Chemnitz early Thursday, followed by smoke.
They saw three people running away and getting in a car. The fire was quickly brought under control and no one was hurt.
A police statement said that "a xenophobic motive currently cannot be ruled out" but that they are investigating "in all directions."
They urged more witnesses to come forward.
