Oranienplatz Refugees, Amidst Dissent, Accept Housing Offer

BERLIN, GERMANY - APRIL 08: A box of household items and a gas canister are among detritus lying on the ground at the former temporary refugee camp at Oranienplatz in Kreuzberg district after riot police sealed it off on April 8, 2014 in Berlin, Germany. Several hundred riot police sealed off the square after, according to an eyewitness, violence broke out between refugees who had accepted a deal by the city to leave the camp and a small number who insisted on staying. Refugees, many of them from Africa who came to Germany via Lampedusa, began dismantling their shelters today after many of them agreed to a deal with city authorities to move to a renovated hostel. Not all of the several hundred refugees, some of whom have been living at the Oranienplatz camp almost a year, have agreed to the deal, and while some said they will go elsewhere, some insisted they will stay, despite a city order to vacate.
