Thousands of German students took to the streets of Berlin yesterday in the latest of a series of protests against the level of public funding for the university sector. Police said some 9,000 protesters had gathered in a peaceful march through the city centre.

The target of many of the student banners and chants was Chancellor Helmut Kohl, who sought to shift blame for the education cuts of recent years from Bonn to Germany's mainly opposition-controlled regional governments.
