German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, said on Tuesday that her decision, two years ago, to allow hundreds of thousands of migrants to enter Germany was a "humanitarian exception".

In an interview yesterday, discussing her response to the refugee crisis, the Chancellor said she would do everything "the same way again" if she had the opportunity.
It has not gone unnoticed that Merkel tends to ignore her SPD challenger, rarely referring to him by name.
It was only the second campaign appearance by Merkel in formerly communist eastern Germany, where anti-foreigner sentiment is especially pronounced. The farthest Merkel would go in that direction, however, was to say she could support a eurozone "economy and finance minister" focused on improving the currency area's competitiveness.
She said: "We're a democracy and everyone can freely express themselves in public the way they want".
