Finland has been saying goodbye to its dead from its second school shooting in less than a year.
The country’s president joined residents of Kauhajoki at a memorial for nine students and a teacher, gunned down at the local college.

Eight of those who died were young women in their twenties. Their killer was 22-year-old fellow student, Matti Saari who shot himself dead.

The town’s nightmare began on Tuesday when witnesses reported hearing shots from a classroom.
The victims had to be identified by their dental records and DNA samples after their attacker lit a number of fires.

Saari posted his own memorial video on YouTube.
