PAYING TRIBUTES: Flowers are seen on a beach of Les Sables-d’Olonne after thousands of people took part in a tribute to three rescuers killed on June 7, when a SNSM vessel capsized in rough seas as a giant storm pummelled the country’s Atlantic coast. The SNSM team had been attempting to help a fishing boat which was struggling in the giant swell caused by storm Miguel, which was packing winds of up to 120 kilometres an hour. — AFP
