Berlin: Germany has recruited 8,500 people to teach child refugees German, as the country expects the number of new arrivals to soar past the million mark in 2015, Die Welt daily reported Sunday.
With some 196,000 children fleeing war and poverty entering the German school system this year, 8,264 “special classes” have been created to help the new arrivals catch up with their peers, Die Welt said, citing a survey carried out in 16 German federal states.
“Some 8,500 additional teachers have been recruited nationwide,” the daily said.
According to Germany’s education authority, 325,000 school-age children reached the EU country in 2015, amid Europe’s worst migration crisis since World War II.

Naji Jerf was killed in Gaziantep, only a couple of months after Isil claimed responsibility for killing Ibrahim Abdelkader and a friend in southern Turkey
A Syrian opposition film-maker was gunned down in broad daylight in the Turkish city of Gazientep on Sunday, apparently by Isil supporters.
Friends said that Naji Jerf, 38, was shot twice in the head after being approached by an unknown car outside of a local restaurant.
Mr Jerf was a vocal critic of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) group which seized large swathes of Syria last year, training citizen journalists from Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently (RBSS), an internationally-praised media collective that exposes the terrorist group’s atrocities inside its de facto Syrian capital. […] This is the second time that suspected Isil members have targeted RBSS on Turkish soil, with little apparent response from the local police.
The Bavarian interior minister has said the southern German state should be able to police its own borders. His words come as local politicians seek ways to mitigate the influx of refugees coming from the east.
Joachim Herrmann said Bavaria should take control of its own borders, as thousands of desperate refugees continue to flood into the southern German state every day.
In an interview with the German weekly newspaper “Welt am Sonntag,” Bavaria’s interior minister blamed personnel shortages for the federal government’s inability to stem the flow of migrants across the border. For that reason, he said, Bavaria’s regional government should take the reins.

Boko Haram Islamic extremists struck the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri for the first time in months Monday with rocket-propelled grenades and multiple suicide bombers, witnesses said. At least 15 people were killed but the toll was feared many times higher.
Nigerian troops “intercepted and destroyed” 10 suicide bombers, according to PR Nigeria, an agency that disseminates government news.
Maiduguri, the city under attack, is the birthplace of Boko Haram, which emerged as a much more radical entity after Nigerian security forces attacked their compound there, killing 700 people in 2009.
Militants firing indiscriminately from the back of three trucks attacked the outlying village of Dawari, soldiers engaged them, and as people were fleeing, a woman ran into a suburb yelling “Boko Haram, Boko Haram.” When people gathered, she detonated herself, according to village head Bulama Isa.
