Indigenous groups, environmentalists, fellow reporters, relatives and friends paid tribute to British journalist Dom Phillips and Brazilian isolated tribes expert Bruno Pereira, who vanished 11 days ago and are thought dead in the Amazon.
On Wednesday night, police announced that they had discovered human remains in a bush burial after being taken there by a fisherman who admitted to killing the two men. The identity of the remains is still a work in progress.
