The town has been in turmoil since the weekend after a 35-year-old man was killed during a fight on Sunday.

Police have arrested a 23-year-old Iraqi and a 22-year-old Syrian.

The rioters are convinced the perpetrators are asylum seekers.

More marches are expected this week and police are on alert for Swiss activists to join. There are connections between the two football clubs, Chemnitzer FC and Grasshoppers Zurich.

Both clubs are known to have a hooligan problem.
