Liverpool falls silent to mark 25 years since Hillsborough tragedy

Anfield stadium in Liverpool, packed to the rafters with supporters, stood silent for a minute on Tuesday, remembering Liverpool Football Club's darkest hour. "A time never to forget," the stadium announcer said simply after the silence. Church and civic bells across Merseyside then tolled 96 times - once for each victim - in memory of fans killed at the 1989 semifinal. The bells began ringing at 3:06 p.m. local time (1406 UTC), the moment when a policeman rushed onto the pitch and ordered the referee to halt play 25 years ago. By that point, two sections of the standing-only "terraces" behind Liverpool's goal had filled well beyond their designed capacities with fatal consequences.
