Germany welcomes Syrian refugees

About 5,000 Syrians granted shelter in refugee camp in country's east where they are allowed to stay for two years.

    Fighting and desperate conditions have forced millions of Syrians to seek shelter abroad.

    Germany is among the European countries who have agreed to take in about 5,000 refugees so far.
