Germany: 'These stories are a shame on Germany' — Bundestag debates response to Moria fire

German lawmakers debated Berlin's response to the humanitarian crisis in the refugee camp of Moria, on the Greek island of Lesbos, during a parliamentary session at the Bundestag in Berlin on Friday. «There is no coordination from the Greek government. This is chaos. And I question myself, Mr Seehofer, is this all we can do? Is this all we can do? We're not talking about a solution in five months but now. These people need help right now,» said Green Party member Luise Amtsberg. «You don't want to take just the asylum applicants but just everybody that arrives here. Therefore, you are not fixing any problem here or in Greece or wherever,» said the Free Democratic Party (FDP)'s Joachim Stamp, calling out the government for its handling of the situation. Late last week, German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer announced 10 EU member states will take part in the relocation plan of some 400 unaccompanied minors from the overcrowded Moria refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos that was destroyed by a massive fire this Wednesday. The Moria camp is the largest in Europe, exceeding almost four times its maximum capacity of 3,100 people, hosting around 13,000 refugees and migrants living in poor sanitary conditions.
