German minister says Berlin reaching its limits in refugee crisis

German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel said in a newspaper interview on Sunday that Germany was now reaching its limit as thousands of refugees continue to stream across its borders every day.
"It's true: The European lack of action in the refugee crisis is now pushing even Germany to the limit of its ability," he said in an interview published on the Der Tagesspiegel's website.
The German government is expecting 800,000 new arrivals this year. On Saturday around 13,000 arrived in Munich alone.
