Female refugees seeking asylum… from asylum centres

Increasing numbers of female refugees are abandoning their accommodation centres in Germany to seek sanctuary in homes for domestic violence victims.

The distressing news about the plight of female refugees in Germany comes as the world marks the UN’s ‘International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women’.

In and around Stuttgart alone there were 105 rapes, assaults and robberies of women and 77 against children in the refugee centres last year, but the local government admits that the number of unreported cases is ‘significantly larger.’
