Germany mulls stricter child marriage laws
With hundreds of cases of child brides reportedly coming to Germany among recently arrived refugees, German politicians are considering tightening the rules.
Authorities have registered hundreds of cases of children being married to adults before they arrive as refugees in Germany, Bild reported on Saturday.
In nearly all of the cases, underage girls had already been married in their homelands to grown men.
The newspaper cited figures from state authorities as well as from the Conference of Justice Ministers.
