Adjust font size:

Our thoughts and prayers are with this nations brave men and women, who lost their lives while making a difference. While waiting for the peacekeepers' bodies to return home, hundreds of their fellows have attended a memorial service in Beijing.

The first day of mourning sees police officers from all over the capital. And many are sending condolences in other ways. The colleagues consider their deaths a huge loss, but say it also brings a sense of pride for the police team.

The peacekeepers have left their footprints in many parts of the world, and this hall is where they're honored at home. Many people have only got to know their faces and stories after their death, but their colleagues recount their moments together.
