German police have published a surveillance video showing three men who assault the far-right AFD politician Frank Magnitz.

The 66-year old was hospitalised after being attacked on Monday evening in the city of Bremen.

The AFD party initially claimed he was attacked with wooden bars, however, prosecutors on Wednesday cast doubt on those accusations after viewing the video footage.

Bremen police are continuing to investigate the incident and described it as politically motivated.

On their website, police announced a 3000 euro reward in exchange for information that could help arrest the three assailants.
