Thousands of people have been attending the state funeral in Addis Ababa of Ethiopia’s long-serving Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, who died last month.
Mr. Meles’ flag-draped coffin was carried from his palace to the city’s Meskel Square for a ceremony, and then buried at the Holy Trinity Cathedral.
Dozens of foreign leaders and dignitaries, including at least 20 African presidents, were present.
Mr. Meles died at the age of 57 in Brussels, following a long illness.
