Merkel Visits Heidenau Asylum Shelter Following Violent Protests
HEIDENAU, GERMANY - AUGUST 26: A local woman (R) offers gifts to a young Muslim family from Damascus, Syria, outside a shelter for migrants following a visit by German Chancellor Angela Merkel on August 26, 2015 in Heidenau, Germany. Onlookers standing outside yelled: "Foreigners out!" and "Liar Press" ("Luegenpresse") during Merkel's visit and right-wing demonstrators clashed violently with police last weekend near the shelter. This is Merkel's first visit to a shelter for migrants seeking asylum in Germany. Germany is expecting to receive at least 800,000 migrants and refugees this year and the country has seen a spate of protests, arson attacks and violence by right-wing protesters opposed to the arrival of the migrants in recent weeks.
