German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser expressed her sympathy to those affected after the fire in a home for refugees in the town of Apolda in the central German state of Thuringia, reported dpa.

"The investigations into the background are ongoing. The federal security authorities are in constant exchange with the Thuringian police and are ready to assist at any time," Faeser (Social Democrats) wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

The public prosecutor's office in the Thuringian capital of Erfurt has launched a death investigation, a police spokesman said on Sunday, which is the standard procedure in such cases of a fire with fatalities: There does not have to be any initial suspicion of a crime.

Ten people were injured in the early morning fire. One body was found. Whether this was a missing 9-year-old can only be determined with final certainty after the forensic medical examination, according to the police.
