Locals and tourists gathered outside the French embassy in Berlin, just meters away from the Brandenburger Tor, to pay homage to those killed at the Paris attacks. The French ambassador Philippe Etienne joined the small crowd. On midday even Berlin’s S-Bahn trains haled their services as a sign of remembrance.

Political analysts now indicate that the German government is divided on the recent refugee crisis and seems quite likely to turn more austere.
