SHARE CAPTION ONLY: MOURNERS MEMORIALIZE HATE-CRIME VICTIMS IN GERMANY

Mourners in Hamburg, Germany, gather around the coffins of a Turkish woman and two girls who were killed Monday in a firebomb attack in Moelln. Thousands attended the memorial service Friday for the victims of neo-Nazi hate crime. Federal investigators on Friday announced the arrests of eight teenage accomplices to Michael Peters, a 25-year-old German held on suspicion of forming a gang of neo-Nazis that firebombed refugee homes. Investigators were still probing whether Peters' gang took part in the Moelln attack, the most deadly in a string of 1,800 gang attacks on foreigners and Jewish memorials this year. Police said the wave of violence against foreigners continued with attacks Thursday and Friday against two refugee homes in western Germany.
