Germany Plans to Shelter 1,500 Migrants from Greek Islands

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Germany plans to take in 1,500 migrants currently taking shelter on Greek islands, government sources said, in addition to around 150 unaccompanied minors from the burnt-out Moria camp. Under a plan agreed by Chancellor Angela Merkel and Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, Berlin will take in migrants who have already secured refugee status, giving priority to families with children, the sources told AFP. Merkel’s right-left coalition government is in talks over the plan, with her junior partner Social Democrats expecting a deal by Wednesday.
