Six vigils were held today around Europe to mark six months since the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

The first vigil was held at the heart of the European Union, Brussels and other vigils were held in Edinburgh, London, Berlin, Amsterdam and Dresden. The vigils were characterised by calls of ‘Justice for Daphne’ and ‘No impunity’.

Two of Caruana Galizia’s three sons, Matthew and Paul, joined the vigil outside Malta House in London where he said “today is like a second funeral. but it is uplifting to see you here.”
