1,000 refugees have been wrongly granted asylum to Germany. Interior Minister Horst Seehofer is under pressure to get to the bottom of the scandal.

The German interior minister is taking drastic action after reports more than 1,000 people were wrongly granted asylum.

Horst Seehofer says an investigation is underway and he has prohibited the Bremen center of the Office for Migration and Refugees from deciding whether individual refugees will be admitted to the country.
