BER­LIN Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel clinched a deal with Ger­many’s sec­ond largest po­lit­i­cal party, in­clud­ing a pledge to cap the num­ber of refugees en­ter­ing the coun­try, af­ter “tur­bu­lent” latenight coali­tion talks.

Af­ter more than 24 hours of dis­cus­sions, Merkel Fri­day agreed to a 28- page blue­print for coali­tion ne­go­ti­a­tions with the So­cial Democrats, paving the way for a deal that could save her chan­cel­lor­ship.

Ger­many took in more than a mil­lion mi­grants in 2015 and 2016.
