In remembrance. The Malaysian athletes, officials and those present observing a minute's silence during the flag raising ceremony at the Commonwealth Games athletes' village in Glasgow on Tuesday.
GLASGOW: A minute’s silence was observed during the flag-raising ceremony to welcome the Malaysian contingent to the 20th edition of the Commonwealth Games at the athletes’ village on Tuesday.
Amidst a lively performance by the National Youth Theatre dancers to greet the arrival of guests from Cyprus, Mozambique, Niue and Malaysia – the mood turned sombre when the announcement was made to observe a minute’s silence in remembrance of the victims of the downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 on July 17.
