Angela Merkel calls for ‘European solution’ on migration

Merkel is currently locked in a stand-off with her party’s Bavarian allies — the Christian Social Union, led by Interior Minister Horst Seehofer — over the government’s migration policy. The parties have sparred for years on the issue, but the fight came to a head Thursday, after Merkel refused to endorse Seehofer’s plan to turn back some refugees at the German border.

Failure to come to a compromise could spell the end of the decades-long alliance between Merkel’s Christian Democrats and the Bavarian party, and bring down her three-month old government.
