Activists begin wave of refugee burials in Berlin
by Jörg Luyken
An artists' collective claims to be bringing hundreds of refugees' corpses from southern Europe to Berlin to give them a proper burial at "the centre of European power." The first burials took place on Tuesday morning.
At the Gatow cemetery on Tuesday morning a row of five women wearing Muslim headscarves cried as mourners threw dirt over a coffin that had just been placed in the ground.
In the background flew UN flags. As an imam gave the service, VIP seats reserved for Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leading members of the German government lay empty.
