Video: Vigil in Chapel Hill for homicide victims

Last Thursday, community and university leaders at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill joined thousands of students, faculty and people from around the Triangle to commemorate the lives of Deah Barakat, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha.

Barakat, 23, was a second-year student at the UNC School of Dentistry, and his wife, Yusor Abu-Salha, planned to attend the school beginning in the Fall. Razan Abu-Salha was a sophomore at North Carolina State University and the sister of Yusor Abu-Salha. The three Muslim students were murdered on Tuesday at an apartment in the Summerwalk Circle neighborhood in Chapel Hill. See a video of the vigil held for them below:
