The German Chancellor and the leaders of the country’s regions have agreed to speed up the processing of asylum applications.

However, they have put off making a decision on how much money the regions will receive to help pay for an expected surge in refugees this year.

It is expected the number of people seeking asylum in Germany this year will double to 400,000.
