DUISBURG – Germany held a memorial service on Saturday for the victims of the Love Parade techno music festival, where 21 people were crushed to death and 500 injured.

The memorial service was held at Salvator Church and was shown live on screens in a football stadium and a dozen other churches in the western city of Duisburg.

Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Christian Wulff planned on attending the event.

Ahead of the memorial service, hundreds of people holding candles walked in a silent march from the tunnel — the scene of the tragedy — to Salvator Church and the stadium.
