08/02/2016 – MEININGEN, Germany – Police investigating migrant themed carnival float

Details of a mocked up wooden train carnival float which is thought to be making reference to the efficiency with which European railways have brought hundreds of thousands of migrants into the heart of the continent has been passed to the prosecutor for investigation.

The locomotive, which was aptly named the ‘Balkan Express’ and had written across the buffer bar “The Plague is Coming” was accompanied by dozens of carnival committee members dressed as grasshoppers. The prosecutor will decide whether the display was a hate speech, or if it comes under the category of carnival satire.
