Germany's right-wing, nationalist AfD party has vowed to fight "an invasion of foreigners" into the country, after winning its first parliamentary seats.

"We want a different policy," co-leader Alexander Gauland said following the historic surge.

However, splits have already emerged between AfD leaders on the party's direction.

Chancellor Angela Merkel has been re-elected for a fourth term but her conservative CDU/CSU bloc received its worst result in almost 70 years.

Merkel is beginning negotiations to form a new coalition government.
