Video: Hundreds of white balloons released in Amsterdam for Flight MH17 memorial

Hundreds of people descended on Amsterdam’s central Dam Square on July 23, the Netherlands’ first national day of mourning for the victims of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17. A crowd of Amsterdammers dressed in white took part in a “silent march” of remembrance from Dam Square around the city. This video captures hundreds of white balloons being released from Dam Square into the sky. Photos, also shared by the uploader, show scenes from the silent procession, which circled the city center.
