Merkel condemns protesters' storming German parliament over COVID-19 restrictions

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday condemned the attempt by some people to storm the country's parliament in protest against COVID-19 restrictions, terming it "shameful" and said they had abused the right to demonstrate peacefully.

Several hundred people tried to get into the Reichstag building during a rally against coronavirus rules in Berlin on Saturday.

"This right to demonstrate peacefully is of course a very valuable asset even during a pandemic," Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert said at a government press conference in Berlin.

However, he said their actions were "a clear abuse".
