La Union, the Colombian city where a plane carrying Brazil's Chapecoense soccer club crashed on Nov. 18, 2016, paid tributes on Sunday to the victims on the 5th anniversary of the tragedy.

An emotional event was held in the village of Pantalio, located on the border of the municipalities of La Union and La Ceja, to remember the 71 people killed in that crash, the six survivors, and the emergency personnel who participated in the rescue and recovery effort at Cerro Chapecoense.

The ceremony took place at a local school under the shadow of Brazilian, Colombian, Bolivian, Paraguay, and Venezuelan flags. EFE
