A day after the incident, people laid flowers as investigators combed through the debris. Mourners at the memorial demanded answers. (SOUNDBITE) (French) MARCEL LEBONON, COMPUTER ANALYST: "I think it should be established who is responsible for this and punishment given so that this doesn't happen again in the future."
