    Austria, not Australia :D

    The editor allready apologized because he made up incidents of which Police and other forces on-site saw no evidence.

    Darn it, spell check bit me on Austria !
    Point is, this is no crime, it's opinion. If it caused harm then it might be slander. Has to be demonstrated.

    Darn it We often get confused with Austria. Now I done it. I think Hitler was born in Austria so that might explain it.

    Christoph Biro, the chief editor of the "Kronen Zeitung", will retire of his own accord for some time from the editorial board. I think this editor had no intention of denigrating Syrian refugees but this Austrian paper is a right-wing tabloid, which is usually demagogic and sensationalist by nature. It was part of his job to write sensational and provocative editorials but he admitted that some claims he had made are not factually accurate.
