MEMORIAL SERVICE AT 2 PM TODAY ON PRASLIN BEACH
The Anse Lazio beach, world famous as one of the best shorelines in the world, will today at 2 pm local time see a memorial service unfold, to pay tribute to the victims of two recent shark attacks.
Both a Catholic priest as well as a Lutheran reverend will jointly hold the religious service right at the beach, only metres away from the spots where one of the attacks took place.
Representatives from the Seychelles government, the Seychelles Tourism Board, the hotels where the victims stayed and a large number of Seychellois but also foreign tourists staying on Praslin are participating in the service and will offer prayers for the victims’ families and friends.
Again, may the souls of the two victims rest in eternal peace and sincere condolences to the families and friends of Nicola Virolle from France and Ian Redmond from Britain.
