More than 2,000 Antiguans joined a march to protest against crime and to express sympathy for the British newlyweds who were murdered on July 27 while honeymooning in Antigua.

The Aug. 7 march through the capital of St. John's was organized by tourism officials and hoteliers who described it as a "national march of solidarity," according to published reports.

Church leaders and police spoke about Catherine and Ben Mullany, who were shot when at least one gunman burst into their secluded cottage at the Cocos Hotel while they slept.

Catherine Mullany died instantly, and her husband was placed on life support but died at a hospital in Wales after being flown home.

No one has been charged with the deaths of the young couple from Wales.  Although Antigua police released all individuals who had earlier been taken into custody for questioning in connection with the double murder, a statement from the police indicated that they were "pursuing fresh leads."
