Will Germany really manage to integrate all the refugees who enter the country? Do the New Year's Eve incidents indicate that a clash of civilizations is imminent? SPD Foreign Affairs spokesman Rolf Mützenich provides some answers.
A state parliamentary inquiry has found police did not intervene fast enough in the 2015 New Year's Eve attacks. According to the report, officers could have prevented hundreds of alleged robberies and sexual assaults.
Despite increasing violence against refugees in Germany, the media focus is on migrant criminality, a new study says. The refugee crisis has dominated headlines since the summer of 2015.
Frauke Petry, the face of the nationalist Alternative for Germany, has suffered a blow to her political career weeks before the Bundestag elections. Even her AfD colleagues have dropped her as prosecutors ready charges.
Henriette Reker has said that state and police leaders did not keep her informed of the situation as it developed. She has claimed she was not given the full picture of the attacks on New Year's Eve until days later.
