German Chancellor Angela Merkel has won international kudos for her response to the refugee crisis. However, more and more members of her own party are calling for Germany’s asylum law to be made more restrictive.
Angela Merkel took the world by surprise in September 2015 when she welcomed hundreds of thousands of refugees to Germany. How well have they integrated into German society, two years on? Phoebe Cooke reports.
Just weeks before the G20 summit, youth delegates from 31 countries have presented their proposals to the German chancellor. During talks, Angela Merkel criticized the lack of international readiness to accept refugees.
Facebook does not have to actively seek and delete defamatory posts linked to Anas Modamani, a court has ruled. The Syrian filed a case after his selfie with Angela Merkel was manipulated to link him to Islamist attacks.
Interior Minister de Maiziere said Syrians would likely see their protections and rights curbed in the wake of the refugee crisis. But Berlin later denied that any changes were actually in the works.
