Bremen (AP) - A good three months after the state election, the AFD parliamentary group in Bremen after a party-internal dispute is broken. Country chief Frank Magnitz and the deputies Uwe Felgenträger and Mark Runge declared on Sunday evening their withdrawal from the so far five-member faction.

Trigger was a rift with faction leader Thomas Jürgewitz, said Magnitz on Monday. This had blocked a constructive opposition work in the citizenry and accused him to have embezzled a five-digit sum of money. The exit is the end of a long development. As a group, the three deputies but want to stay in the citizenry.
