Over 100,000 Mourners Attend Muhammad Ali Funeral


Louisville, Kentucky police estimate that more than 100,000 people turned out for Muhammad Ali's funeral procession in his hometown on Friday. Fans, friends and family of the three-time heavyweight boxing champion lined the streets for an emotional goodbye to the legendary sports figure. A motorcade procession began at about 10:35 local time, more than an hour behind schedule, and took the Ali's coffin past his childhood home, the Ali Center, the Center for African American Heritage and then down Muhammad Ali Boulevard. Ali passed away last Friday at age 74 after a long battle with Parkinson's disease.
