Germany is investigating allegations of the repeated abuse of asylum seekers by employees of a private security firm.

Several photos and a video have surfaced, purportedly showing several incidences of ill-treatment of refugees, at a centre in Burbach.

One image appears to show the foot of a German security guard pressed against the neck of an Algerian asylum seeker.

A refugee centre, the security company and four workers are being investigated.
