Heartbreaking.

The funerals have been held for the three children of ASOS founder, Anders Holch Povlsen.

The three kids, Alfred, Alma and Agnes, were killed on Easter Sunday during a terrorist attack.

The ASOS owner lost three of his four children in a string of violent attacks by suicide bombers on Easter Sunday, that killed 253 people.

 

Yesterday, the funeral service was held at Aarhus Cathedral in Denmark, where the children’s coffins were laden with bright, colourful flowers.

The Royal Family of Denmark and the Prime Minister attended the service.

At a memorial last week, the family described their loss as "utterly incomprehensible".

They thanked family, friends and neighbours in the Danish town of Brande for their support, in a text message read by a priest.

The family was staying at the Shangri-La Hotel in Sri Lanka’s capital on Easter Sunday, when Alfred, Alma and Agnes were killed.

It has believed Mr Polvsen was hurt in the attack, but it is not known how seriously he was injured.

Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by these senseless attacks.
