CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- The 10 victims of last week's plane crash outside Moab were remembered during a candlelight ceremony.

All 10 names were read and a candle was lit for each as hundreds of people mourned during the ceremony at Southern Utah University on Monday night.

The group was from a dermatology clinic that had spent the day treating patients in Moab and was flying home Friday night. The twin-engine plane crashed shortly after takeoff and there were no survivors.

Two of the victims were students at Southern Utah University. Dean of Students Dale Orton called the crash one of the biggest tragedies to happen to southern Utah.
