The residents of Aratos, a village of 700 near the northeastern Greek city of Komotini, expected 17-year-old Hussein Daitzik and his family, migrants living in Germany, to visit next week as part of their annual vacation in their ancestral home.

Instead, they will attend Hussein's funeral next week.

Daitzik was one of nine people killed by an Iranian-German gunman who went on a rampage Friday in Munich before killing himself. Daitzik died trying to take his sister Gulfer — they and a brother, Sunai, were triplets — out of the line of fire, says village mayor Amet Amet. She was not wounded.

The family belongs to Greece's Muslim minority.

Amet tells The Associated Press on Sunday that Daizik "had many friends here in the village. He was a very good boy, quiet."
