Germany's Love Parade discontinued out of respect

Help

The organiser of the Love Parade festival, Rainer Schaller, has said the event will be discontinued in the future "out of respect" for those who lost their lives in yesterday's stampede in which 19 people were killed.

Officials have launched an investigation into the disaster.

Mr Schaller said the event had always been a "joyful and peaceful party" in the past.
