Germany marks 30 years since fall of Berlin Wall

Germany is marking 30 years since the Berlin Wall fell, a pivotal moment in the events that brought down Communism in eastern Europe.

Leaders from Germany, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic attended a ceremony at Bernauer Strasse - where one of the last parts of the wall remains - before placing roses in gaps in the once-fearsome barrier that divided the city for 28 years.
