Thousands march on 9th anniversary of Tel Aviv gay youth center shooting

Some 2,000 young people marched in Tel Aviv on Saturday evening to commemorate the ninth anniversary of the deadly shooting at the city's Bar Noar gay youth center and demand an end to discrimination against the LGBT community. The 2009 attack was carried out by a lone gunman who killed two young people and wounded dozens more. The shooter was never caught. Many in the LGBT community consider the shooting a hate crime while police have speculated that it was motivated by a personal dispute rather than antipathy toward gays.
