DORTMUND - Two asylum-seekers turned the tables on two German skinheads who chased them with baseball bats and knives, police in the western German city of Dortmund said on Friday.

The victims, from Turkey and the former Yugoslavia, ran into their refugee hostel for help. The residents emerged armed with clubs, a broomstick and a lamp and defeated the two 23-year-old racists.

An inquiry has been opened against the two skinheads as well as the Yugoslav. Police said he exceeded his right to self-defence by continuing to club an attacker who was prone on the ground.
