“The police call them Nafris.”

Sex attacks in swimming pools have been a major issue since the height of the migrant crisis in 2015, particularly in Germany where there have been multiple cases of migrants sexually assaulting pool-goers including cases involving children.

German Swimming Pool Closes After Gang of 50 North Africans Cause Havoc

When asked by the local newspaper to describe the perpetrators, Florian König, manager of the Auenheimer outdoor swimming pool, said: “The police call them Nafris.”

The term “Nafri” became well-known following the Cologne New Year’s sex attacks and has been criticised as being a racist term, with the Cologne police being accused of “racial profiling” the following year after the attacks.

Police later defended the term and an internal document described “Nafris” stating: “The clientele behaves very aggressively against intervening police officers and city colleagues… Armaments (folding knives) are regularly carried.”


The pool manager described that the young North African-heritage men often cross the border to Germany to use the pool, causing trouble, but noted: “This year [the behaviour] has gotten extremely bad.”

Neighbouring France also saw several incidents at swimming pools over the weekend. In Corbeil, a swimming pool had to be evacuated after a group of youths, described as being aged between 13 and 15, defecated in it.
