At least 400 people have been detained by police in the German city of Stuttgart during protests against the populist party, the Alternative for Germany.
The Alternative for Germany party has introduced a bill aimed at permanently banning refugees from bringing their close relatives over from war-stricken countries. The move sparked a fiery debate in the Bundestag.
For many in Germany, Austria's 31-year-old chancellor represents an alternative to veteran Angela Merkel. So how did the two get along when they met in Berlin to talk about migrants, the EU and other issues?
AfD lawmaker Jens Maier has been warned by his party over a racist tweet about the son of tennis legend Boris Becker. But Maier, who called Noah Becker a "half-negro," can remain in the party.
The ex-AfD chief has made her first public outing as the leader of a new "movement" - the Blue Party. Frauke Petry's watered-down nationalism seemed to appeal to her audience in the eastern state of Saxony.
