Vigil in Berlin for student killed for helping harassed women

More than 100 people attended a vigil in Berlin on Sunday for a German student who died after she was beaten for stopping a group of men from harassing two women.

Tugce Albayrak was in a coma for two weeks after she was attacked in the car park of a fast food restaurant in Offenbach, near Frankfurt.

Her parents decided to allow doctors to turn off her life support on her 23rd birthday.
