    Germany’s migration agency has calculated the number of recently arrived Syrian migrants will double, increasing by half a million, as those granted asylum are allowed to bring over families.

    Germany saw a record two million “foreigners” arrive in 2015, up from 1.3 million in 2014. Some 428,000 of them are thought to be Syrian “asylum seekers”.

    Germany’s federal office for refugees and immigration (BAMF) has now told the nation to prepare for another 500,000, German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung reports.
