BERLIN >> Thousands of people have joined rallies across Germany and other European countries to show their support for the idea of a united Europe.

Protesters in Berlin, Frankfurt, Cologne and dozens of other locations danced, sang and waved the EU flag — 12 stars on a blue background — during the rallies Sunday.
