The regional government had banned fireworks for New Year’s Eve. A nighttime curfew was in place to dissuade people from gathering in public during the coronavirus pandemic.

In neighboring Germany, police said a 24-year-old man died after lighting a home-made firework in Rietz-Neuendorf, about 30 kilometers (20 miles) southeast of Berlin.

Police said Friday that explosives experts found several more unused devices in the vicinity.

Germany banned the sale of fireworks this year to deter gatherings. It cut down on many serious injuries that clog up hospitals every New Year’s Eve. Here
