German Chancellor Angela Merkel needs to reassure an increasingly skeptical public that Germany can cope with the huge influx of immigrants. A national debate has started over whether the refugees will be a boon or a burden to the German economy.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has met with the head of Libya's internationally recognized government, Fayez al-Sarraj. She said "there is still a lot to do" to improve migrant conditions in the country.
