Merkel and Obama grieve for Manchester

US ex-President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are "heartbroken" after the Manchester attack, Mr Obama has told Germans.

He was speaking to an estimated 70,000-strong crowd at Berlin's Brandenburg Gate.

The televised event, with Mrs Merkel sitting next to him, was part of a religious convention organised by the German Protestant Church.

The US Democrat said he would help young people to marginalise those who sought to exploit social divisions.
