The young victim of the Helsinki Koskela homicide was remembered on Friday with candles in dozens of places around Finland.

On Facebook, the Justice for the Victim of Koskela - Against Bullying and School Violence group wanted people to light a candle somewhere prominent in different cities.

The act was intended to resist violence and bullying.

In Helsinki, candles burned on the steps of the Parliament House, in Turku on the steps of the Cathedral, in Lahti on the steps of the Cross Church and in Kuopio near the Heroed Soldier hero statue.

The Koskela homicide took place in early December in Helsinki.

Around seven o'clock in the evening, about 100 candles had been brought to the stairs of Turku Cathedral, and new people visited the place all the time. Photo: Anna-Maija Naakka
