Wreath laying ceremony held to remember Falklands dead

A wreath laying ceremony has been held in the Falkland Islands to remember those who died during the conflict with Argentina.

British Foreign Office Minister Jeremy Browne joined local officials and war veterans at a Falkland Islands' cemetery for fallen soldiers in San Carlos Bay.

The ceremony was held a day before the 30th anniversary of the end of the conflict, which left 655 Argentines and 255 British soldiers dead in 1982.

The BBC's Caroline Wyatt was at the ceremony in the Falkland Islands.
