World War II: Dresden bombing remembered 70 years on

A ceremony of commemoration has taken place in the German city of Dresden, 70 years after Allied bombing killed around 25,000 people and left much of the city in ruins.

Thousands of anti-Nazi demonstrators walked through the city, while survivors and dignitaries remembered those who lost their lives.
