Thousands of Polish citizens have taken to the streets to express their shock and outrage over the senseless killing of Mayor Pawel Adamowicz, who was knifed to death at a charity event.

Demonstrators carried placards calling for an end to violence while the capital of Warsaw was lit up with thousands of candles in memory of the Gdansk mayor, who died aged 53 after being stabbed on stage. Health Minister Lukasz Szumowski confirmed Mr Adamowicz had died today, a day after the much-loved politician was rushed to hospital following the attack.
