Genocide: Romanian pogrom showed Nazis 'how to do mass murder'

Romania has marked the 70th anniversary of one of the worst pogroms of the Holocaust.

Up to 15,000 Jews in the city of Iasi - a third of the total - were murdered within the space of a few days in 1941.

Ceremonies have been held at Jewish cemeteries in the presence of a handful of survivors who were decorated as honorary citizens of the city.
