Berlin:  Chancellor Angela Merkel and most of her cabinet will join a rally for an "open and tolerant Germany" organised by Muslim leaders on Tuesday in Berlin in the wake of the jihadist attacks in France, a spokesman said.

Merkel will take part in the event at the Brandenburg Gate in the heart of the capital, along with Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel, Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and other top officials, government spokesman Georg Streiter told reporters today.

Merkel joined French President Francois Hollande and several other world leaders at a huge Paris solidarity rally on Sunday following the massacre of 17 people by Islamist gunmen in the city last week.
