The German government on Friday slammed online hate commentaries cheering the unsolved murder of a Hesse politician, who was vocally pro-migrant.
"If someone is so hated, just because he had liberal views, that is the decline of human morality," Germany's interior minister, Horst Seehofer, told the newspaper Tagesspiegel.
Police are investigating the murder last weekend of the prominent local politician, Walter Lübcke, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's centre-right Christian Democrat (CDU) party.
