Germany welcomes 10,000 new refugees

<p>Germany was expecting more than 10,000 new refugees to arrive during the course of Monday (September 7). </p> <p>Migrants and refugees received a warm welcome after arriving on a train from Austria to the German city of Munich.</p> <p>They were then taken to reception centres for registration and may be transferred to shelters elsewhere in the country over the coming days.</p> <p>Volunteers have brought everything from water to toiletries, clothes and other necessities and have commented on how little the new arrivals brought with them. </p> <p>The influx of people comes after Vienna and Berlin agreed to waive rules requiring refugees to register a claim for asylum protection in the first EU country they reach.</p> <p>Meanwhile five people have been injured after fire broke out at an asylum shelter in the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg.</p> <p>Police say around 80 people were in the building in the town of Rottenburg.</p> <p>The cause of the fire is still unclear and investigations are ongoing.</p> <div id="slides" dir="ltr"><ul class="slides_container"><li class="slide"><div class="caption"><h2></h2><p>A migrant boy gives thumbs-up in a registration centre at the
