Germany's Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has staged a protest march in Berlin under the slogan "Asylum needs limits - red card for Merkel". Police were deployed to keep the protesters and three counterdemonstrations apart.

Renowned for ambitious guerrilla actions, the artist collective Center for Political Beauty unveiled their latest project: a replica of Berlin's Holocaust Memorial set up next to right-wing AfD leader Björn Höcke's home.
Germany's chancellor has said that it would be "simply wrong" to hold new elections after coalition talks collapsed. Her statement came as rival Social Democrats reconsidered a second "grand coalition" with her CDU.
