(INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS TIMES) Amid backlash over Germany’s policy to accept a large number of refugees and clashes erupting among them at refugee camps, the deputy head of the police trade union has said the country should separate those seeking asylum by religion. In particular, Christian and Muslim refugees should not be sharing any housing, said Jörg Radek according to Christian Today, which reported violent fights between members of the two religious groups.
“The police have reached their absolute breaking point,” Radek told a German newspaper, the Telegraph reported. “Our officials are increasingly being called to confrontations in refugee homes. When there are 4,000 people in a home, which only actually has places for 750, this confinement then leads to aggression where even a tiny thing like the corridor to the toilet can lead to violence.”
Germany is expected to get about 800,000 asylum applications this year. About 60 refugees were involved in a Sunday dispute that resulted in a fight while later in the day a fight involving hundreds of refugees also was reported. In addition, a fight was reported last Thursday involving about 200 refugees.
