Germany: Thousands dance their hearts out at Berlin's Love Train festival

Around 10,000 people attended the first edition of Berlin's techno Love Train festival, dancing through the streets of the German capital, Saturday. The Love Train festival featured 14 trucks loaded with huge speakers blasting electronic music on a 10 kilometre (6 mile) route through Berlin. Festival organisers presented the event as a political demonstration, hoping to rekindle the original spirit of Germany's Love Parade festival. Berlin's Love Train festival is the first of such street events in Germany since 21 people died during a stampede at the Love Parade festival in Duisburg five years earlier.
