Of the 32 suspects identified by police in Cologne's New Year's Eve attacks on women, 22 are asylum seekers, the German Interior Ministry says.
There is evidence the asylum seekers committed offences such as theft and bodily injury of a non-sexual nature, but none are believed to have engaged in sexual assault, a ministry spokesman says.
The suspects include nine Algerian, eight Moroccan, five Iranian, four Syrian, one Serbian, one Iraqi, one US and three German citizens.
The ministry said earlier Friday that 18 of the suspects were asylum seekers.
