A far-right politician in Germany has been left seriously injured following what police are calling a "politically motivated attack".

Frank Magnitz, who leads the local branch of the far-right 'Alternative for Germany' Party, was set upon as he left the office of a local newspaper.

The AFD released a graphic photo of Magnitz's injuries at the hospital on social media, claiming three masked men ambushed him.

Politicians and critics of Magnitz have condemed the attack.
