Hundreds of LGBTQ activists gathered at Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, Saturday, to commemorate the Orlando 'Pulse' nightclub shooting victims. The iconic gate was alighted in the colours of the rainbow flag in memory of the deceased.

Mourners left flowers outside the U.S. Embassy in Pariser Platz - beside Brandenburg Gate, while others held pictures of the victims and lit candles in their memory.

Forty nine people were killed and dozens injured in a shooting at the LGBT nightclub 'Pulse' in Orlando on June 12. The shooting is the deadliest attack in the US since 9/11. Omar Siddiqui Mateen, a US citizen of Afghan descent living in Port St. Lucie, was identified as the culprit. He was killed during the SWAT operation at the club.
