Abroad, refugees have "raved about the warm welcome they had received in Germany after their long and difficult journeys through Europe," according to NBC News. The news outlet reports refugees, many from Syria, have received applause, water and backpacks, clothes, toiletries and pizza, too.

The Times reports that from Syria alone, "About 12 million [people] have been displaced, four million abroad, since 2011."
