Tugce Albayrak funeral: Thousands mourn in Germany
Large crowds in Germany have been paying their final respects to a young woman who was killed defending two girls from harassment.
Tugce Albayrak died on Friday after she was hit on the head and left in a coma outside a McDonald’s near Frankfurt.
Hundreds of mourners attended a service at a local mosque before she was due to be buried in her home town.
A man of 18 remains in custody over the 15 November attack, which shocked Germany.
The funeral took place at a mosque in Waechtersbach, attended by Hesse’s state Prime Minister Volker Bouffier. The Turkish ambassador was also due to take part in the service.
Mr Bouffier spoke of the “horror” of the attack that had made her death all the sadder.
The funeral procession then set off for a cemetery in the village of Bad Soden-Salmuenster, where Tugce Albayrak was born.
