Hundreds of people have turned out for a beachfront tribute to a 13-year-old surfer who died in a brutal shark attack.
Elio Canestri had his arms and legs bitten, as well as part of his stomach, while surfing off the Indian Ocean island of Reunion.
Rescuers arrived quickly but could not save him.
A 3.5-metre tiger shark was quickly captured and killed but an examination of the boy's body revealed it was not the animal that killed the boy.
Elio was surfing in an off-limits area introduced after a series of shark attacks around the island.
