Germany’s far-right has blamed Angela Merkel’s open door refugee policy for the Berlin Christmas market attack.

A leading member of the anti-immigration AFD party, Marcus Pretzell, could face possible police action after he denounced the Chancellor via social media website Twitter, stating: ‘‘These are Merkel’s Dead”!

Other far-right leaders across Europe also blamed the EU’s open borders for the lorry attack in the German capital, including France’s Marine Le Pen.

Blasting Merkel in a “press release”: http://www.frontnational.com/2016/12/attentat-islamiste-au-marche-de-noel-de-berlin-notre-devoir-est-dagir-vite-et-fort/ she called for the immediate restoration of national borders.

Elsewhere, Dutch Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders also took to twitter. He accused Germany’s leader of having blood on her hands with a provocative photo.

While in Britain, former UKIP head Nigel Farage also intimated the Chancellor’s policy towards refugees was responsible claiming the events in Berlin will be Merkel’s legacy.
