A man in Southern Germany was beaten to death by four men after he publicly urinated near a church, police said on Thursday.
Police are searching for the four men who hurled insults and attacked the 51-year-old man recently after he was seen urinating close to a church in Freiburg, a city in Germany’s traditionally Catholic south.
According to police, the man told his son about the attack before succumbing to his injuries later that day.
However an autopsy confirmed that he died as a result of the attack.
Report says public urination on Church buildings has become an issue of public concern in Germany, corroding the buildings’ sandstone foundations and leading authorities to institute hefty fines.
