WATCH: Commemorations to remember the 35 Syracuse students who died in the Lockerbie disaster

Commemorations have taken place in the United States, ahead of the 30th anniversary of the Lockerbie bombing.

35 students from Syracuse University, in upstate New York, lost their lives when the flight they were on was targeted by terrorists.

The students were returning home from a study abroad programme in Europe.

Each year, Syracuse has a remembrance week and this year's had a particular significance, marking 30 years since the disaster.

Among those paying tribute were two students from Lockerbie. Each year two pupils from Lockerbie Academy study here as part of a scholarship set up after the disaster.
