Sri Lanka: 'The loss of our beloved children are completely incomprehensible; Billionaire Asos tycoon and his wife says at memorial service



Billionaire Asos tycoon and his wife say the loss of their two daughters and son killed in Sri Lanka is 'completely incomprehensible' but vow to 'come through it together' at memorial service

Reading the message to a crowd of around 700 well-wishers, pastor Arne Holst-Larsen said: 'The loss of our beloved children Alma, Agnes and Alfred are completely incomprehensible.
'With the many lovely people we have around us, close friends, talented colleagues and our loving family we will come together through it. 
'We greatly appreciate the humanity that is also shown in Brande tonight - not only to our families and children, but to all the victims of the cruel acts in Sri Lanka.' 
People had gathered in the city square to light torches, sing song, read prayers and hold a two minute silence out of respect for the dead. 


Meanwhile another memorial service was held in Stavtrup, a suburb of Aarhus, where the family lives.
Mourners led a torch-lit walk from the suburb to Povlsen family home before Anders and Anne emerged to stand with them for a few minutes.
Commemorations were also held Wednesday in the capital Copenhagen and third-largest city Odense.
