Merkel to speak in Berlin against anti-Semitism

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is to speak at a mass rally against anti-Semitism on Sunday, amid a sharp rise in attacks on Jewish people in Germany.

The event in Berlin comes 75 years after the outbreak of the World War Two, in which six million Jews were killed by Nazi Germany.

Mrs Merkel has vowed to do everything she can "to ensure anti-Semitism doesn't have a chance".
