German police have begun a manhunt for three suspected arsonists after an attack on a vaccination centre in the eastern state of Saxony.

Three persons threw beer bottles containing flammable liquid at the building in the small town of Treuen on Tuesday evening.

No one was injured and there was no major damage, as the content of the bottles did not ignite a fire, police said.
