Germany Hails Slain Turkish-German Student as Hero


Thousands of German citizens are mourning the death of Tugce Albayrak, a student who was murdered for sticking up for two teenage girls getting sexually harassed by a group of men at a central German McDonald’s on November 15.

One of the men allegedly hit the university student in the head in the restaurant’s parking lot. She crumbled to the ground. After two weeks in a coma, her parents took her off life support on her 23rd birthday…

Thousands of people gathered in Offenbach over the weekend to place candles in front of the hospital where Albayrak died. Vigils also were held in Berlin and Munich.

She is to be buried Wednesday.
