Merkel Critic Pazderski: Germany Sitting on 'Time Bomb'

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to admit huge numbers of refugees without knowing their identities has created a “time bomb” for the country, said a regional leader from the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany party.

The country is trying largely on its own to accommodate migrants fleeing war and poverty, with most other European Union members refusing to contribute, Georg Pazderski -- co-leader of the AfD in Berlin -- said in an interview with Bloomberg Television broadcast on Tuesday.
