BERLIN -- Berlin's Senator for Economic Affairs Franziska Giffey has become the latest victim in a series of violent attacks against politicians in Germany. A suspected man was provisionally arrested on Wednesday.

While visiting a library in the German capital on Tuesday, Giffey was injured by an "attack from behind with a bag filled with hard contents and hit on the head and neck," the public prosecutor's office in Berlin said.

After brief treatment in hospital, Giffey continued her appointments under personal protection. The attack could not be justified, said the politician, expressing concern about violence against politically engaged people.

Attacks on politicians in Germany have gone up. In the past few days, there have been several attacks against politicians, including a candidate for the upcoming European elections, who suffered fractures to his face.

The interior ministers of the German states met on Tuesday to address measures.

On Sunday, thousands of people gathered across the country to condemn attacks on politicians, particularly in Dresden and Berlin.
