More than 202,000 people applied for asylum in Germany last year, the interior minister said Wednesday, with large numbers coming from war-torn areas in the Mideast and Afghanistan.
The figures represented a 60-percent rise compared to 2013, and Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere announced them as the country grapples with how to integrate newcomers.

The ministry said the agency processing asylum requests and local communities had been receiving financial support to help deal with the high numbers of new arrivals.
