An arson attack was carried out early Monday on an apartment housing Sinti and Roma families near the west German city of Cologne, police said.

'We cannot rule out a radical right-wing background,' a police spokesman said.

Unknown individuals had thrown explosive devices into the ground floor apartment in the town of Leverkusen. The occupants escaped unharmed, according to police.

Witnesses spoke of four perpetrators who drove off in a car and minibus.

The apartment was gutted by the flames, but firefighters were able to prevent it from spreading to the rest of the building.
