Thousands pay last respects to Sharon at Knesset

Published: 01.12.14, 12:46 / Israel News

Former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's body lay in state on Sunday outside the Knesset in Jerusalem, where thousands waited to bid farewell to the maverick warrior-statesman who reshaped the Middle East.


Sharon died at the age of 85 on Saturday after eight years in a coma caused by a stroke he suffered at the pinnacle of his political power. He will be buried on Monday in a military funeral on his farm in the south. (Reuters)
