German leader visits Dachau camp

Angela Merkel became the first German chancellor to visit the former Nazi concentration camp Dachau Tuesday but critics slammed her decision to include the stop on an election campaign swing. Ahead of a beer-tent rally for supporters in Dachau, northwest of Munich, Merkel spent an hour at the site, making a short but emotional speech, laying a wreath of flowers and touring the remnants of the camp with a handful of survivors.
