As Germany faces a record influx of 1 million asylum-seekers this year, its capital Berlin has come under attack for allowing chaos to reign in overwhelmed refugee offices and shelters.This was despite the fact Bavaria is taking in 15 percent of refugees coming to Germany, against 5 percent for Berlin.The mood inside has been described as tense, in part because 2,200 inhabitants in bunk beds have to use outside portable toilets and a bus shuttle service to take showers in nearby public swimming pools.Berlin, faced with a chronic housing shortage, plans to expand the Tempelhof site and accommodate up to 8,000 people in tents inside its hangars. The Berliner Zeitung daily said the challenge was to build a functioning refugee facility "akin to a small town".
