Germany has unveiled plans to speed up the asylum process, after the governing coalition resolved a rift on the issue.

Chancellor Angela Merkel said they would create up to five special centres for asylum-seekers deemed to have little chance of staying.

Merkel's Christian Democrats and junior coalition partners the Social Democrats have quarrelled for weeks over the issue.

Germany says it expects to receive at least 800,000 asylum seekers this year.
