Victims of Swiss coach crash mourned at schools

Belgium is mourning the deaths of 28 people - 22 of them children - in a coach crash in Switzerland.

The coach, carrying 52 people back to Belgium following a skiing trip, struck a wall in a tunnel on Tuesday.

The children on the bus that crashed were from the Stekske primary school in Lommel, near the Dutch border, and from St Lambertus in Heverlee, near Leuven, with the numbers roughly even.

The BBC's Philippa Thomas reports on the scene at St Lambertus school where distraught relatives have attended meetings.
