Berliners celebrate fall of Wall


Celebrations to mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall have taken place in Germany.

Chancellor Angela Merkel led a procession of world leaders, including UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, through the Brandenburg Gate - the symbol of German reunification in 1990.

Festivities included speeches, fireworks and a giant domino display.
