Two weeks after a fire destroyed the overcrowded refugee camp Moria on the Greek island of Lesbos, asylum policy is high on the EU Commission's agenda. German Chancellor Angela Merkel's governing coalition agreed to take in 1,500 additional refugees from Greece, a decision hotly debated by the opposition in the German Bundestag. Some critics say the number's not nearly enough, while others say it's time for other EU member states to step up. Host Sylvia Cunningham discusses the current situation on the Greek island of Lesbos and German aid efforts.
