A mass brawl broke out in a crowded refugee centre in Germany, Europe's top destination for people fleeing war and poverty, as the UN warned Thursday the unprecedented migrant influx may yet grow.More than half of those who have made it to Europe have been Syrians fleeing their country's four-year civil war. Many have headed to Germany, which took in 280,000 migrants last month, more than in all of last year.Some 200 Syrians and Afghans clashed overnight in a Hamburg refugee centre, a former hardware store now sheltering 800 people, leaving four people injured, police said.In earlier such disturbances, 14 people were injured Sunday when 70 Pakistanis clashed with 300 Albanians in a shelter in the central city of Kassel, before dozens of Syrians and Pakistanis came to blows Tuesday in a camp in the eastern city of Dresden.Last month, almost 170,000 people entered Austria, and while most travelled on to Germany and beyond, the Alpine country still expects a record 80,000 asylum requests this year.
