German chancellor Angela Merkel has drawn mockery online for stroking the back of a Palestinian girl facing possible deportation after she reduced her to tears by explaining her policy on asylum and adding that "politics can be tough sometimes". ...

Belarusian-born writer Evgeny Morozov tweeted: "This week has been fantastic for German public diplomacy. All that was missing was Merkel making refugee children cry."

However Ms Merkel also had defenders.
