Church service in Duisburg for Love Parade crush victims

A memorial service has been held in the western German city of Duisburg one week after the Love Parade dance festival ended in tragedy.

Twenty-one people died and more than 500 were injured during a mass panic and crush at the event.

The BBC's Tristana Moore said that Chancellor Angela Merkel broke off her summer holiday to attend the memorial service.
