Germany hands out cartoon etiquette guides at swimming baths after dozens of women were groped by migrants

German authorities have issued cartoon posters in public swimming pools

The illustrations are warning migrants not to harass or grope women

Comes after migrants were banned from some swimming pools in Germany

Three Syrian teenagers arrested in Munich for attack on girls at public pool

Swedish police are sending undercover officers into Stockholm's pools

German authorities have resorted to issuing cartoon leaflets in public swimming pools in an attempt to stop gangs of migrants groping women.

In the wake of the sex assaults in Cologne on New Year's Eve and a wave of reported cases of sexual harassment in swimming baths, officials have now created a special cartoon guide on appropriate etiquette.

The illustrations feature German captions with subtitles in English and Arabic and warn migrants not to wear underwear instead of swimming trunks, harass women, or push them in the water.

The leaflets have so far been issued across public pools in Bavaria, southeastern Germany.

This comes after migrants were banned from a historic swimming bath in Germany after a gang of men were caught on camera masturbating in a hot tub and sexually assaulting women.

Several other men were seen 'emptying their bowels' in the children's end of the main swimming pool at the Johannisbad baths in Zwickau, Saxony.

Management at the historic baths are reportedly no longer allowing migrants into the facilities following the allegations while some local swimmers have stayed away after the incidents.

In response to growing concerns, a leisure centre in Bornheim, North Rhine-Westphalia, became the first in Germany to ban migrants after a schoolgirl was sexually assaulted in a public swimming pool by Syrian teenagers.

Three Syrian boys were arrested in January over the attack at a leisure centre in Munich as the country grapples with growing concerns about sex crimes perpetrated by asylum seekers.

The ban also follows an attack by an 18-year-old refugee on a 54-year-old woman in Bornheim, where he had groped and tried to kiss her.

In Sweden, police have resorted to sending undercover officers to Stockholm's swimming pools amid a rising number of sex assaults on girls by migrants.

Plain clothes police will monitor swimming baths in the Swedish capital after 'a few dozen' suspected cases of sexual harassment were reported mainly by parents of teenage girls.

It comes amid reports that a number of girls said they had been sexually assaulted by young male asylum seekers at the city's Eriksdalsbadet Olympic baths in recent weeks

The four cases involve girls under the age of 18 and all sexual assaults have taken place in hot tubs, pools or in the changing rooms.

The baths have started segregated whirlpool bathing after an increase in reports by girls and women that they had been groped underwater.

Meanwhile Switzerland has also adopted a similar Austrian cartoon flyer for its upcoming Lucerne carnival which authorities are issuing to migrants.
