From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Bavarian president wants to shut out desperate refugees

Monday 4th January 2016

THE CONSERVATIVE president of Germany’s Bavaria state has called for an annual limit of 200,000 refugees.

Horst Seehofer insisted to newspaper Bild am Sonntag that Germany can only integrate up to 200,000 refugees a year.

Most of the million asylum-seekers who came to Germany last year arrived in Bavaria.

Other Western nations have been disgracefully reluctant to accept Syrian refugees.

In comparison, Syria’s government spent £104 million aiding Palestinian refugees last year, the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees said on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Turkish coast guard and local fishermen rescued 57 refugees left stranded on an islet in the Aegean Sea after attempting to reach Greece.

Helicopters evacuated 12 people, including three sick children, while small fishing boats helped rescue the others, as coast guard vessels were unable to navigate the rocky area.

Since the tightening of restrictions on the right to asylum decided by the majority of the German parliament in October, many more refugees have been deported. At the end of November, the number of people forcibly deported from Germany was already nearly twice as high as in the entire previous year: here.

GERMANY warned yesterday that freedom of movement in the EU was under threat after Denmark tightened border controls. Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen announced heightened restrictions aimed at keeping out refugees on its southern border with Germany yesterday: here.

Baffling Kosovo mass exodus exposes domestic hardships. After travel restrictions lifted, waves of immigrants have left Kosovo to follow rumours of a better life abroad: here.
