'These are Merkel's dead'
Germany's far-right has blamed Angela Merkel's immigration policy for the Berlin Christmas attacks. Merkel said she was'shocked and shaken' by the deadly attack in Berlin last night and admitted it would be 'particularly sickening' if the terrorist was an asylum-seeker.
A suspect arrested after the attack was revealed to be a 23-year-old Pakistani citizen named as Naved B who came to Germany in late 2015 or early 2016. However, there are reports in Germany that police now believe he was not the perpetrator and that the true attacker is 'still armed, at large and can cause fresh damage.'
This morning, Merkel faced a furious acklash over her open-doors policy on immigration having allowed nearly a million people fleeing conflict and poverty in the Middle East and Africa to arrive in the country this year and last.
Marcus Pretzell, a prominent member of the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, tweeted: 'When will the German state of law strike back? When will this cursed hypocrisy finally stop? These are Merkel's dead! (hash)Nice (hash)Berlin.'
