EAST BERLIN (AP) _ About 150 youths rioted at a multinational culture center in East Berlin, and five people were injured, the news agency ADN said Saturday.

Four people were arrested in the violence late Friday night, ADN said.

The crowd threw rocks, bottles and other objects at the culture center, set up in a former East Berlin theater as a meeting place for foreigners and Germans living in the city, the state-run news agency said.

It said the youths also attacked 12 police cars ordered to the area to quell the rioting.

There have been numerous reports in recent months of clashes between rightist youth gangs and foreigners.
