Germany fears xenophobia taking hold in east

Passerbys look at a burned down roof of a building in Bautzen, eastern Germany, Sunday, Feb. 21, 2016. The fire damaged the former hotel that was being converted into a refugee home and two people were detained after hindering firefighters’ work, police said Sunday, days after an incident in which a mob blocked a bus carrying asylum-seekers in the same state.
