Memorial Seen at German Filling Station After Worker Killed in Face Mask Dispute

People have been leaving flowers, candles, and tributes to a worker at a filling station in German, after he was shot and killed in what police said was a dispute over a face mask.

Police in the west German state of Rhineland-Palatinate said on September 20 that a 49-year-old man had been arrested in Idar-Oberstein on suspicion of murdering the 20-year-old worker and student.
