Berlin vigil: German leaders join Muslim community rally
Thousands of Germans have taken part in a vigil in Berlin organised by Muslim groups to promote tolerance and religious freedom in the country.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Joachim Gauck attended the event, which aimed to show solidarity with the victims of the Paris attacks.
They are also responding to the recent "anti-Islamisation" rallies staged by the Pegida organisation across Germany.
