Germany to take in 150 refugee children from Greece

Germany has agreed to take in over a hundred children from a Greek refugee camp which was destroyed in a blaze, the country's interior minister said Friday.

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer and EU Commission’s Vice President Margaritis Schinas held an online news conference to discuss the latest situation in the Moria Camp.

Seehofer said that France and Germany will take in most of the 400 unaccompanied children that were relocated to the city of Thessaloniki.

Germany did not give an exact number as the negotiations are still continuing, Seehofer stated.

Germany aims to bring the children to the country until the end of this year, he said.
