Refugees take up home in Berlin 'container town'
The first refugees have begun taking up home in one of Berlin's new "container towns" - special emergency housing built out of stackable, portable blocks.
Some 30 refugees took up home in the block in Köpenick, eastern Berlin, at the weekend, with more expected to follow shortly.
The controversial blocks are being erected as an emergency measure following an influx of refugees both to the capital and to Germany during 2014, but have seen a spate of protests by locals, neo-Nazis and counter-demonstrations by anti-fascist groups.
