VIDEO: Derry stands with Manchester

The people of Derry sent a message of solidarity to Manchester at a candlelit vigil in the Diamond on Wednesday evening.

The vigil was organised by the Derry Anti-War Coalition.

“Well done to all those who attended the vigil tonight at the War Memorial,” said organiser David McAuley.

“Wonderful turnout at such short notice. Another world is possible,” he added.
