Germany: Woman dragged round town by rope tied to neck

(Hamelin) The German town famous for the tale of the Pied Piper witnessed something even stranger than a pack of rats following a man playing a flute. It transpires that a Kurdish asylum seeker decided to tie a rope around the neck of a young woman, which he then fastened to the car's tow bar and drove around town with a huge smile on his face.

The 28-year-old woman was found lying on a pavement late on Sunday with serious injuries. She underwent an emergency operation and was flown to a specialist clinic. She is currently in a coma. Police say she had been dragged by the neck through several streets.

Her 38-year-old former partner has been arrested.
