A moment of silence at 15:09 GMT, the time the blast occurred, was among several events planned to observe the explosion.
Demonstrations continued for a third straight day after the government’s resignation Monday in the wake of the blast. Hundreds of protesters gathered again outside the parliament building, chanting slogans against the political leaders and throwing stones. Security forces, in turn, fired tear gas.
