Spymaster dispute won't fell German coalition - Merkel


VILNIUS (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday her coalition government would survive a row over the future of the domestic intelligence chief following his comments on the hounding of migrants by far-right activists in the eastern city of Chemnitz.

Hans-Georg Maassen, head of the BfV domestic intelligence agency, has faced calls to step down after he cast doubt on the authenticity of video footage showing the far-right protesters chasing the migrants after the fatal stabbing of a German man.
