VIDEO: Thousands Attend Slain Canadian Officers' Funeral

Police and members of the public filled a hockey arena in Moncton on Tuesday for the regimental funeral of three New Brunswick Mounties killed in the line of duty, reports Global News and The Canadian Press.

RCMP pallbearers carried the flag-draped coffins of the slain officers – constables Fabrice Georges Gevaudan, Douglas James Larche and Dave Joseph Ross – into the Moncton Coliseum.

A beige RCMP Stetson was placed atop each casket at the front of the service. Danny, a police dog that served with Ross, was led inside.

Before the funeral service began, people inside the arena stood and applauded for 45 minutes as police officers from across Canada and the United States arrived to take their places.
