BASF factory blast hits Ludwigshafen in Germany
Several people were reported injured and missing after an explosion at German chemical company BASF's headquarters in Ludwigshafen. Flames and a cloud of smoke could be seen in a harbour area of the north of the town, where oil and gas tankers supply the plant. BASF said the explosion happened during work on a pipeline route for transporting raw chemicals to shipping. Residents were told to close their windows as the cloud of smoke spread. The extent of casualties was initially unclear from the explosion, which happened shortly before 11:30 (09:30 GMT) on Monday. BBC Read More>>>>>
German Companies Race to Sign Up Migrant Workers
Migrants provide a rich seam of talent—but hiring them is far from easy
BERLIN—German companies are scrambling to connect almost 1 million immigrants with jobs—but the rich seam of fresh labor is throwing up manifold challenges.
The rush to recruit migrants is partly altruistic, borne of a concern for the wider society.
Assimilating the new arrivals quickly could prevent them from drifting toward radicalism, and reduce strain on Germany’s public services.
Yet there is also a clear benefit for German businesses blighted by an aging, overstretched workforce.
Germany’s adjusted unemployment rate dipped to 6.3% in November, its lowest level in almost 24 years. With so few people available to fill the gaps in the private sector, migrants provide an obvious opportunity.
Yet, while overall joblessness continues to fall, unemployment among working-age migrants from the Middle East and Africa hit 42.1% in September, according to Germany’s Federal Employment Agency, up 4.4% from a year earlier—highlighting the challenge authorities face.Companies ranging from family shops to BASF SE, the world’s largest chemicals firm, have opened their doors to immigrants from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and other countries.

Three members of white anti-Muslim militia group arrested for bomb plot to destroy mosque and apartment where hundreds of Somali immigrants live the day after the election
Three members of a militia group have been arrested for plotting to blow up a mosque and apartment where many lived the day after the election. Curtis Wayne Allen, 49; Patrick Eugene Stein, 47; and Gavin Wayne Wright, 49, were arrested on Friday and charged with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction. The three men are part of an extremist militia group known as the 'Crusaders', which is staunchly anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, and anti-government. Acting U.S Attorney Tom Beall said the men were arrested at the end of an eight-month FBI investigation that saw agents go, 'deep into a hidden culture of hatred and violence'.
