Young Munich shooting victim buried in Greece

Hussein Daitzik, 17, one of the nine victims of a July 22 shooting in Munich, has been buried in his family's native village near the Greek city of Komotini. His parents and two siblings – they and Hussein were triplets – attended alongside his 72-year-old grandmother, who lives in the village. It appeared that the whole village, both Christians and Muslims, turned out. Hussein's many friends, who had expected him on his annual family vacation this week, have done the same tattoo on their hands: “R.I.P. Hussein 22/7/16.” [AP]
