BERLIN - Three days after the racially-motivated attack in Potsdam that left an Ethiopian born German in hospital fighting for his life, a 35-year-old man from Yemen was attacked Wednesday in Berlin in what police referred to as a "probable anti-foreigner assault."

According to the Berlin daily the Tagesspiegel, the incident happened around midday on Wednesday at the Warschauer Strasse underground station in Friedrichshain. The station is frequently used by tourists visiting the East Side Gallery, one of the few remaining stretches of the Berlin Wall.

Two men in their late twenties are said to have attacked the man after a short argument. Eye-witnesses reported that one of the men hit the Yemenese man over the head with a bottle and the other man threatened him with a flickknife.

Witnesses called the police who were able to seize the two men, who were reported to be drunk. The men were retained in custody for questioning.

The victim was released from hospital after being treated for a head wound.
