Germany's interior minister says that 965,000 people were registered as asylum seekers in the country from January through the end of November.

The figure given by Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere on Monday puts the total number of new arrivals this year above the total of 800,000 he forecast for 2015 in August. He said he won't give a new full-year forecast.

De Maiziere said the actual number of new arrivals through the end of November is below 965,000 because of people who registered more than once or continued to other countries, but he can't say how much lower.
