Transgende­r man, 25, dies after German pride parade assault:


A 25-year-old transgende­r man died from his wounds in a hospital Friday, almost a week after he was assaulted while rushing to help women at a Pride parade in the western German city of Muenster, police said. The man, whom police have named only as Malte C., in accordance with privacy convention­s, intervened when an attacker started hurling homophobic slurs at other participan­ts in the Christophe­r Street Day parade, police said. The attacker hit Malte twice in the face. He lost consciousn­ess after his head hit the ground when he fell, and never woke up. Police said Friday that they had detained a 20-yearold man in the attack.
