Chancellor Angela Merkel has reiterated calls for other EU members to take in more refugees

With talk of a million or more asylum seekers arriving on German territory this year alone, Merkel’s coalition is increasingly divided. I am working on reducing the number of refugees,” she said in Darmstadt on Monday at a meeting of her CDU party.

“I just don’t think – and I am speaking to those who believe that we should close Germany’s border with Austria – that this will solve the problem.”
