A NEO-Nazi cop is feared to have triggered a race riot that rocked Germany.

Six thousand far-right demonstrators massed in the city of Chemnitz after two asylum seekers allegedly stabbed a carpenter to death.

The protesters clashed with 1,000 anti-fascists, while skinheads were seen chasing immigrants through the streets. Ten face charges for giving Nazi salutes.

Now it is believed a corrupt police officer leaked the stabbing suspects’ arrest warrants to far-right activists, who then stirred up racial hate by posting details online.

The disclosures included  the male suspects’ names and addresses, witness IDs and the number of stab wounds suffered by the victim, known only as Daniel H.

A hunt for the rogue cop was last night under way.

The city of Wismar was also hit by unrest and Chemnitz was again braced for fresh protests.

An Iraqi, 22, and a Syrian, 23, are charged with manslaughter.
