The funeral of Yasser Arafat is underway. A private state funeral was held in Cairo as kings, presidents and heads of state paid their respects to the lifelong Palestinian leader. A helicopter then flew Arafat’s body to the West Bank to be buried at his compound in Ramallah where he was confined in his final years. Tens of thousands of Palestinian mourners swarmed the coffin as it was carried to the burial site.
