Belfast students call for anti-terrorism vigil

Students at Queen's University, Belfast, yesterday called on people throughout the city to attend an anti-terrorism vigil later this week.

The Students' Union asked people to gather on Thursday to express their 'revulsion and disillusionment' at the deteriorating situation in the community and to offer sympathy to the bereaved.

The gathering - 'Twenty-five Minutes for Twenty-five Years' - will take place outside the main university building.
