Beslan victims remembered in Potters Fields

A charred teddy bear was the centrepiece of a memorial event held in Potters Fields on Saturday for the 186 children killed in the Beslan school massacre a year ago.

The teddy bear, on the back of a small van, was parked in Potters Field by the European Institute for Pluralism (IEPP), to remind people of the abandoned toys which littered the site of the devastated school.

The institute also staged simultaneous events in Paris and Madrid.
