Funeral services have already been held for the two victims killed in the deadly gravel slide in St. Paul Wednesday.

Ten-year-old Mohamed Fofana and nine-year-old Haysem Sani of St. Louis Park died when the ground gave way beneath them during a fossil-hunting field trip at Lilydale Regional Park.

The classmates were honored in separate ceremonies in a Burnsville mosque on Friday.

A fund has been set up to help the families of the children. For more information about how you can help, visit our Links page.
