Far-right protesters booed the Chancellor as she arrived at a refugee center in the eastern German town of Heidenau near Dresden. Merkel held talks on Wednesday with refugees, volunteers and security staff at the refugee home.
She strongly condemned the violent demonstrations against refugees, saying "there will be no tolerance for those who call into question the dignity of other people." The chancellor also said that the German government was planning legislative amendments in order to better deal with the refugee issue.
