“politically awkward”

I love the city of Cologne. Reports of the New Year’s Eve violence against women there are shocking and sad.

What is maybe not as shocking, but disheartening is the reticence of public officials to name the attackers because of who the attackers are.

“According to the Kölner Stadt-anzeiger, the officer leading the team at the station wanted the report to include mention of the Syrians and asylum seekers, but the senior officer writing the “WE-Meldung” decided not to, saying it would be “politically awkward.”
