Adressing the Bundestag, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has raised concern about the rise of political extremism, calling for renewed commitment to a culture of debate.
The German chancellor has partially blamed Russia for a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria. But the Kremlin said that despite their differences, Moscow would "continue bilateral contacts" with Berlin.
Bickering has broken out in the governing coalition over family reunifications for refugees in Germany. But the Interior Ministry has backed off its previous tough talk on asylum seekers. Was it all just posturing?
The German government supported the airstrikes by the US, UK and France in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack. But a new report has said the airstrikes infringed upon international law.
There appears to be a majority of lawmakers in Germany's parliament who want the chancellor to attend regular question and answer sessions. Even Angela Merkel herself appears to have warmed to the idea.
