Hundreds of officers went into buildings to arrest rioters while being attacked with iron rods and Molotov cocktails thrown from the roofs. Officials say 476 officers have been injured in the violence since Thursday.

Police have arrested 114 people, and 89 activists have been temporarily detained. The number of injured protesters wasn't clear.

Gabriel told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper that a Europe-wide investigative team should search for suspects.

"We had to deal - detached from the actual events at the summit - with ruthless acts of violence by criminals", Andy Grote said. Cars were torched, street fires lit as activists built barricades with garbage cans and bikes.

The overwhelming majority of the tens of thousands who took to the streets peacefully protested against the G-20 summit.

World leaders will come together later Saturday to tackle issues including terrorism, climate change and trade.
