Street in Dresden where the Eritrean man was found dead.
A 20-year-old man from Eritrea has been found dead in the front yard of his home in Dresden, Germany on Tuesday morning.
Police officials say they are not suspecting foul play was involved in the death of the Eritrean.
The authorities did not release the man’s name, but said that he was an asylum seeker in Germany.
The Eritrean was found dead amid 25,000 people demonstrating in an anti-Islamisation rally in Dresden the night before.
The city has become a symbol of a new German anti-islamist and anti-immigrant grassroots movement called PEGIDA in recent months.
Especially, in eastern Germany, which was part of the former German Democratic Republic (DDR), the movement is strong, although, foreigners make only 2.5% of the population.
The body has been sent for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death, while the case is under investigation by police.
