South Africa: Funeral for Desmond Tutu begins


A funeral for Archbishop Desmond Tutu begins with a hymn and a procession of clerics down the aisle at a cathedral in Cape Town. The requiem mass started at 10 am (0800 GMT) at the city's St. George's Cathedral where, for years, Tutu used the pulpit to rail against a brutal white minority regime, and that is where he will be buried. Famous for his modesty, Tutu gave instructions for a simple, no-frills ceremony, with a cheap coffin, donations for charity instead of floral tributes and an eco-friendly cremation. IMAGES
