Germany must have frank talk about integration: Merkel
by Hui Min Neo
Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday Germany must have a "fundamental" debate about how to integrate newcomers, as police identified 16 people suspected of a shocking rash of sexual assaults blamed on migrants.
As outrage grew over the assaults, which included two alleged rapes and several accounts of groping during New Year's Eve festivities in Cologne, Merkel said citizens were right to raise serious questions.
She pledged strong action and stressed that "we must also speak again about the cultural fundamentals of our co-existence".
