Police holds a group of men in front of Hauptbahnhof main railway station, where on New Year's Eve one year ago hundreds of apparently coordinated sexual assaults were perpetrated against women, prior to New Year's Eve celebrations on Dec. 31, 2016, in Cologne, Germany. City authorities have deployed around 1,500 police officers - more than 10 times the amount from last year, to maintain public areas during this year's festivities. Security across Germany is also high due the recent Berlin terror attack, in which suspect Anis Amri killed 12 people when he drove a truck into a Christmas market.
