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.
Alexander Gauland, the top candidate for the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany, has told DW there should be a clear path for repatriating migrants. Accepting refugees is not in Germany's interest, he said.
Support for the anti-immigration AfD has been eroding, but not in eastern Germany. The right-wing populists remain a force in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, which has fewer refugees than any other state. How can that be?
August 24, 1992, marked a dark day in Germany's postwar history as right-wing extremists attacked a refugee home in Rostock-Lichtenhagen. Twenty-five years on, experts met in Berlin to assess how far Germany has come.
The Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has voted to allow Frauke Petry to run in the September election, despite internal strife. After building up the AfD, she has become a divisive figure in the nationalist party.
