German populists in 'shoot migrants' storm
Germany's eurosceptic right-wing populist AfD party created a storm Saturday by suggesting police "if need be" should threaten to shoot migrants seeking to enter the country.
"We need efficient controls to prevent so many unregistered asylum-seekers keeping on entering via Austria," said party chairwoman Frauke Petry, in comments carried by the Mannheimer Morgen regional daily.
Border police "should be able if need be to have recourse to their firearms -- as laid down by law," the paper quoted Petry as saying.
