A Romanian woman, a relative of a victim of the 1989 anti-communist revolution, is overwhelmed during a religious commemoration at Heros of the Revolution cemetery northwest of Bucharest on Thursday. Dozens of people from all over the country paid respects to those who took to the streets 20 years ago, sparking the revolution that toppled Eastern Europe's most repressive communist regime. More than 1,000 people were killed across Romania during clashes between demonstrators and forces loyal to ruthless dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.
