Refugees in Germany could reach 1.5 mn.

BERLIN, Oct. 06 (MNA) –The number of refugees that arrive in Germany could exceed the 800,000 predicted by the Government of Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel, local media reported on Monday.

Just between October and December, the Government expects around 920,000 applicants for asylum in Germany, the sensationalist newspaper Bild, referring to anonymous Government sources.

If the information is true, the total number of refugees in Germany could increase to one and a half million before the current year ends.

The federal Government has planned so far the arrival of 800,000 exiles.

The Interior Minister of the federate state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lorenz Caffier, member of the Christian Democrat Union (CDU), as Merkel is, said the number could reach between 1,200,000 people and 1,500,000.

On the contrary, Interior Minister Thomas Maiziere, also member of the CDU, denied repeatedly the possibility to calculate for now the total number of refugees.
