Dozens of local and foreign surfers on Tuesday held a ceremony at sea for Salvadoran Katherine Diaz, a 22-year-old sportswoman who died last week after being struck by lightning at a beach in El Salvador.

Dressed in white shirts with the image of Diaz, and carrying white roses, the surfers gathered before the waters of the Pacific Ocean and held a one-minute silence in honor of their fellow surfer. EFE-EPA
