The World from Berlin Germany's Integration Debate Takes a Turn for the Worse

The debate over Muslims in Germany has flared up again after Bavarian Governor Horst Seehofer said Germany doesn't need any more Turkish or Arabic immigrants because they don't integrate as well as others. Commentators say he has damaged government efforts to calm the debate.
Bavarian Premier Horst Seehofer, head of the conservative CSU party, has caused outrage with his comments about Turkish and Arab immigrants.
