A German small town Thursday sent a bus with 31 Syrian refugees on a road trip to Chancellor Angela Merkel's office in protest against her liberal migrant policy.The Bavarian district chief behind the journey to Berlin, Peter Dreier, said his rural area was buckling under the strain of a mass influx that brought 1.1 million migrants to Germany last year.Pro-refugee activists condemned the trip as a publicity stunt that exploited the refugees.While media and police stood around the bus, Berlin city officials inside were seen negotiating with the Bavarians, as Syrians looked on with worried faces, glancing nervously at the TV cameras outside.After two hours, Dreier said he had agreed to personally pay for the refugees' first night in a Berlin hotel, stressing that the bus had also been laid on by "a private person", not with taxpayers money.
