The first of 750 refugees arrived in a tiny German village tonight amid fears it will become overwhelmed by migrants.
Some 100 men, women and children stepped off two buses in the rural village of Sumte, close to the river Elbe in eastern Germany, tonight.
The refugees were welcomed by welfare group Arbeiter- Samariter-Bund (ASB) who have transformed the former offices of a debt collection agency into a shelter for 500.
In the village, which has a population of only 102, a local neo-Nazi councillor is rubbing his hands with delight at the propaganda victory bureaucrats in Berlin appear to have handed him.
