Breaking News

A German socialist MP has been urged to resign after calling for the return of the secret police.

The MP, a member of The Left party, said bringing the Stasi back could be "useful".

Christel Wegner, one of The Left's six new MPs in the state legislature in Lower Saxony following last month’s elections, said it would be "useful to have the Stasi back to deal with (conservative) reactionary forces."
