Struggling Germany urges neighbors to do more to ease refugee crisis
By Paul Carrel and Georgina Prodhan BERLIN/MUNICH (Reuters) - Germany told its European partners they must take in more refugees on Monday as it struggles to cope with record numbers of asylum seekers and as police in Hungary used pepper spray on migrants who broke out of a reception center at the border. Chancellor Angela Merkel, speaking after a weekend in which 20,000 migrants entered Germany from Hungary by train, bus and on foot, described the influx as "breathtaking" and tried to reassure the country the crisis was manageable.
