Demonstrators in Berlin have been protesting again, against a move by property developers to tear down parts of the Berlin Wall to make way for a block of luxury flats.

Builders have now removed four segments of the Wall.

Protesters say it is a historic monument to the Cold War and should be preserved.

Al Jazeera's Nick Spicer reports from Berlin.
