Re: Wales has fallen silent as the country remembered the Aberfan disaster 50 years ago.<br />
On 21 October 1966, a mountain of coal waste slid down into a school and houses in the Welsh village, killing 144 people, including 116 children.<br />
A day of events to commemorate the disaster included a service at Aberfan Cemetery at 9:15am on Friday.<br />
Prince Charles is visiting Aberfan memorial garden before unveiling a plaque in memory of the victims.<br />
He will also attend a reception with the families of some of those who lost their lives, before signing a book of remembrance.
