German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday that she would not be turned from her course in the refugee crisis by headwinds in the polls or rumours of rebellion in her own party, repeating her insistence that Germany can weather the storm.

German publishing giant Axel Springer is rumoured to have its sights set on a $560 million (around €500 million) deal to buy online news source Business Insider (BI). One expert tells The Local that it's an obvious next step in the company's drive to stay ahead of the news game.
