Most Germans say Merkel's refugee policy not to blame for Berlin attack
Angela Merkel came under immediate political pressure for her open-door refugee policy following last week's terror attack against a Berlin Christmas market, but according to a survey out Wednesday most Germans see things differently.
A survey conducted by Forsa research group for Stern magazine found 68 percent of Germans do not agree that the chancellor's policies were to blame for the attack in which a truck plowed through a crowd, killing 12 people.
Suspect Anis Amri, a 24-year-old Tunisian who was later shot dead by police in Italy, had been denied asylum in Germany and should have been deported prior to the attack.
