Protests take place in Berlin over COVID restrictions

Protests were held in Berlin over the restrictions and rules imposed as a result of COVID-19 pandemic in Germany. To disperse the protestors, police had to use water cannons near the Brandenburg Gate. Crowds ignored calls to wear masks and keep their distance from one another in line with pandemic regulations. 

Officers avoided shooting the cannons directly at protesters because there were children in the crowd, and they worked slowly and methodically to disperse the crowd, Berlin police spokesman Thilo Cabiltz said.
