BERLIN — Germany has marked the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Berlin Wall - a pivotal moment in the events that brought down Communism in eastern Europe.

Leaders from Germany, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic attended a ceremony on Saturday at Bernauer Strasse, where one of the last parts of the Berlin Wall remains, before placing roses in gaps in the once-fearsome barrier that divided the city for 28 years.
