Prosecutors are now probing possible charges of negligent homicide after a 26-year-old burned to death in his prison cell. The man was a victim of mistaken identity and should not have been incarcerated.

German authorities do not know the whereabouts of some 900 refugees under the age of 14. The head of a German children's charity said the new figures were alarming.
