Violent brawl in German asylum center leaves 6 injured
Berlin (AFP) - Some 50 people at a German shelter for asylum seekers engaged in a violent brawl overnight, hurling chairs and beating each other with table legs, leaving six people injured, police said Saturday.Imagine what will be happening in Germany when they are released into the wild.
The punch-up, which took place in the northern town of Itzehoe, was the latest illustration of the rising tensions between refugees at the country's overstretched reception centres.
The dispute broke out during the evening meal on Friday when an Arabic-speaking refugee insulted a group of Kurds, a police statement said. The confrontation quickly escalated, drawing in around 50 people who threw tables, chairs and benches and beat each other with table legs.
Security guards tried to break up by fight by using pepper spray and around 50 police and six dogs were called in as backup. Four asylum seekers were treated for head injuries and two security guards sustained light injuries, the statement said.
Two young Kurds -- one Syrian and one Iraqi -- as well as a Syrian were arrested after being singled out as the main instigators, with police saying they would be transferred to "other centres around the country".
Such incidents have multiplied at refugee centres across Germany, which is expecting to receive up to a million asylum requests by the end of the year and is struggling to accommodate everyone.
Crunch talks for Merkel on Muslim migrant crisis as thousands more arrive
BERLIN (Reuters) - Nearly 10,000 refugees continued to arrive in Germany daily, police said on Saturday, highlighting the scale of the challenge facing the country's stretched border staff ahead of a crunch meeting between Angela Merkel and a Bavarian ally on the crisis.
Chancellor Merkel will discuss refugee policy on Saturday evening with Bavarian premier Horst Seehofer, head of the Christian Social Union (CSU) and who has criticized her asylum policy and handling of the crisis.
The CSU, sister party to Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU), has been outspoken about her "open doors" policy towards refugees, in part because its home state of Bavaria is the entry point for virtually all of the migrants arriving in Germany.
Berlin expects between 800,000 and a million refugees and migrants to arrive in Germany this year, twice as many as in any prior year.
The huge numbers have fueled anti-immigration sentiment, with support for Merkel's conservatives dropping to its lowest level in more than three years. There have also been a spate of right-wing attacks on shelters: police in Dresden reported two more arson attacks on Friday night on a hotel and a container, both of which were planned to house refugees and asylum seekers.
Several hundred at anti-migrant rally in Austria
Several hundred right-wing supporters have rallied in Austria against asylum-seekers who have been streaming into the country in search of a better life in Western Europe.
The protest on Saturday was held at the Austrian border area of Spielfeld where thousands of refugees have been crossing in from Slovenia. Demonstrators were marching toward the refugee camp while chanting anti-government slogans and holding banners reading "No Way" or "You will not make Europe your home."
One right-wing leader, Thomas Kirchner, says "we welcome refugees which actually need help but not without control." He insists that "no one knows who comes in ... that's a danger for all of Austria."
A smaller group of leftist supporters have held a rally of their own holding banners reading "Refugees Welcome."
