More than 5,000 protested in Berlin (pictured) and thousands more throughout Germany over the 'open-door' policy that many have blamed for four brutal terrorist attacks that left 13 dead over the last month. The Chancellor faced a fresh wave of fury after it emerged that two recent terror attacks and a third killing were carried out by men who entered the country as refugees. Now her key ally in Bavaria - which bore the brunt of the attacks - has launched a fresh attack on her leadership, distancing his party from Merkel and straining the coalition that keeps her in power. Earlier this week she proclaimed 'we can do this' as she promised not to let four violent attacks guide her political decision on immigration. But Horst Seehofer (inset), the conservative premier of Bavaria, said today '"We can do this" - I cannot, with the best will, adopt this phrase as my own.'
