German Jewish leader calls populist AfD rise 'frightening'
The head of the German Jewish community said the rise of the right-wing populist and anti-migrant AfD party was "frightening", ahead of a key state election Sunday.
The Alternative for Germany party is polling above 20 percent in the northeastern state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, where Chancellor Angela Merkel has her electoral seat.
Support for the AfD in the state is at a similar level to Merkel's conservative CDU and just behind the centre-left Social Democrats.
