Germany’s new interior minister has said he believes “Islam does not belong” to the country, in direct contrast with Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Horst Seehofer has long been a vocal critic of Mrs Merkel’s refugee policies but has now taken up a key role at the heart of her new coalition.
His comments are seen as an effort to win back voters from the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.
The chancellor was quick to distance herself from the remarks.
