An emotional crowd gathered on Wednesday (October 28) at the funeral of Lavin Eskandar, killed last week in a sword attack on a Swedish school.

The 20-year-old teaching assistant was stabbed to death as he tried to protect his pupils from the rampage. One teenage boy was killed. The attacker, who wore a mask and is said to have had a racist motive, was shot by police and died of his wounds.
