BERLIN The German government on Monday denounced anti-refugee protests that took place in eastern Germany, calling the events in which a group of people hindered asylum seekers from getting off a bus to enter a shelter "deeply shameful".

"How cold-hearted, how coward one has to be to plant oneself in front of a refugee bus, to swear and to roar in order to scare the people sitting inside, among them several women and children," government spokesman Steffen Seibert said during a regular news conference.
