Swiss artist Milo Moire has stripped off at the site in Cologne where dozens of women were sexually assaulted on New Year's Eve. She stood nude in front of the German city's iconic cathedral with a sign saying: "Respect us! We are not fair game even when we are naked."
The protest comes as Cologne's police chief was dismissed today amid mounting criticism of his force's handling of the attacks. Police were blasted after gangs of around 1,000 migrant men - reportedly of North African and Arab descent, attacked, robbed and sexually assaulted women outside the main railway station.

Earlier today it was revealed police seized a vile note from migrant sex attackers with threats warning women they "will f*** and kill them". One man had a note in German and Arabic with phrases including "beautiful breasts", "I want to have sex with you" and "I'll kill you" scrawled on it.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has come under attack for her country's open-door policy on immigration in light of the violent attacks. It is alleged suspects boasted their immigrant status made them untouchable as they stopped police from reaching victims. One reportedly shouted: "I'm a Syrian! You have to be kind to me! Mrs Merkel invited me."
