BUCHAREST, Romania — A hero of a Bucharest nightclub fire that killed at least 32 people was buried Tuesday in a memorial service that drew hundreds of weeping mourners, while more than 10,000 others took to the streets of the capital to protest against the government following the tragic event.
Claudiu Petre, a kind-hearted and bearded 36-year-old photographer and blogger, returned to the blaze in the Colectiv nightclub on Friday night to rescue a woman and then went back into the inferno in the basement club. He was never seen alive again.
