Video from the Menin Gate, Ieper

16 November 2012

Hundreds of people attended the Remembrance Ceremony at the Menin Gate in Ieper on Sunday. The tributes to the fallen were led by Crown Prince Filip of the Belgians, who laid the first wreath.

The streets near the gate were thronged with people as a silence was observed to remember the fallen. At the end of the ceremony thousands of poppy leaves were let fall through the sky lights in the roof of the gate.
