Pavlo Sheremet was killed in a car bomb blast in Kyiv
Residents of Minsk bringing flowers to pay their last tribute to journalist Pavlo Sheremet, who was killed in a car bombing in central Kyiv on July 20.
Sheremet, a journalist at news website Ukrayinska Pravda, was driving to a radio station to do a morning show two days earlier when the bomb exploded. The Interior Ministry said the explosives were "skillfully" planted underneath the car and that the blast may have been set off by a "remote-controlled or delayed-action" detonator.
Surveillance footage showing what media reports said was the placement of a bomb under the car the night before the blast was posted on the Internet, but there was no word on suspects or a specific motive. Colleagues believe Sheremet was targeted for his work as a journalist.
Europol and the FBI are assisting Ukraine in investigating Sheremet's slaying.
Late on July 22 Sheremet's body was repatriated to his native Belarus, where a funeral service will be held. Sheremet will be laid to rest beside his father.
