SINGAPORE, June 14 (Xinhua) -- About 400 people in Singapore on Tuesday held a vigil for victims of a mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Participants of this "WeAreOrlando Candlelight Vigil" held a minute's silence for the 50 people that were killed in the shooting. They also placed glow sticks and electric candles in a heart shape to honor the victims.

Tonight, we show that in times of tragedy, people come together in the name of love," said Nicholas Lim, organizer of the event and also founder of an online LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community "GLBT Voices Singapore."
