Thousands of people took part in a 'Silent Demo' at Berlin's Alexanderplatz on Saturday, far exceeding the just 1,500 individuals expected to take part in the event.

During the protests outside the Alexanderplatz train station, police clashed with protesters, leading to arrests and arguments between police and demonstrators.

Protesters can be seen being detained while others shouted at police.

The demonstration, one of several throughout the country, drew hundreds of law enforcement and backup emergency services to monitor the proceedings. The events were organised by affiliates of the "No to Racism" and Black Lives Matter movements.

Berlin residents joined thousands worldwide who are taking a stand against police brutality and systemic racism in their societies, in the aftermath of George Floyd's killing in Minneapolis nearly two weeks ago.
