Immigrants occupy Regensburg cathedral

July 08, 2016

A group of about 40 immigrants has occupied the Catholic cathedral of Regensburg, Germany, demanding that they be allowed to remain in the country.

The Regensburg diocese has announced that it will not grant "asylum in the church" to the immigrants, who come from Balkan countries. However, the diocese is also not asking police to intervene.
