Germany: Exhausted refugees wait for northbound trains in Munich

Germany, Munich
September 6, 2015 at 21:39 GMT +00:00 · Published

After arriving by train from Salzburg earlier in the evening, hundreds of refugees waited to start the next leg of their journey in Munich, Saturday. While many of the new arrivals decided to stay in the city, some 800 others are waiting to board trains that will take them to Dortmund and Frankfurt on Sunday morning.

A cluster of Medical Helpline and Red Cross tents are set up outside the station ready to assist with aid. A total of 10,000 refugees are expected to arrive in the city after travelling from Hungary.

On August 21 Germany declared its suspension of the Dublin Regulation for Syrian refugees. The regulation states that migrants can only claim asylum in the country they first enter on EU territory; they could face deportation should they try any other country. However Germany is now permitting officers to process applications of Syrian asylum seekers even if they travelled through other EU countries first.
