German right-leaning AfD leader calls for police right to shoot at refugees
Alternative for Germany (AfD) leader Frauke Petry has said police should have the right to shoot illegal migrants at the border "if necessary." The comments have been met with outrage from opposing politicians.
Speaking during an interview with the Saturday edition of German newspaper "Mannheimer Morgen," Frauke Petry said border guards "must prevent illegal border crossings and even use firearms if necessary."
"It's in the law," she said, to which the paper asked, "There's a law in Germany that contains a firing order?"
