Germany to take hundreds of refugees from Italy

Germany will step up efforts to accept asylum seekers from Italy under the EU's relocation scheme, Italy's interior minister Angelino Alfano has said. He told La Repubblica TV that the EU scheme had been a "flop", but that from September "hundreds of refugees" would go to Germany every month. Some 961 people have been relocated from Italy since the scheme was launched last year, compared with the target of 39,600.
