Eight days has passed since the Manila hostage crisis where eight Hong Kong tourists were killed and seven others injured. Hong Kong residents are still in a sombre mood over the tragedy and have held a range of memorial events to express their condolences.
Tens of thousands of Hong Kong residents held a memorial service and march on Sunday in memory of the victims.
Alberto Ho, rally organizer, said, "The theme of the march is mainly to express our condolences over the tragic death of the Hong Kong people in this incident."
At the start of the march, protesters stood in silence with their heads bowed.
Then, they marched down through the streets to the Central financial district, carrying banners demanding a thorough, impartial and independent investigation into the incident.
In another event, Filipino workers, who are working in Hong Kong, organized an interfaith service in the city's Central district. A few hundred Filipinos attended the mourning ceremony.
Elma Oliva, Filipino worker in Hong Kong, said, "We ask the Hong Kong people not to blame us for what happened. We didn't want it to happen either and we feel sorry for the victims' families."
Participants held up posters with messages expressing their condolences and sympathies.
Eight small candles were lit for each of the eight victims killed in the hijacking.
