Israelis Pay Last Respects As Body Of Ariel Sharon Lies In State

Thousands of Israelis — and a few Palestinians — filed solemnly past the casket of former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on Sunday to pay their last respects to a provocative leader who forged his country’s legacy of independence amid a precarious Middle East existence. Sharon died early Saturday at age 85 following a massive stroke in 2006 that had left him in a coma. A funeral service is set for Monday, when Sharon will be buried on his farm in southern Israel. A high-profile delegation from the U.S. led by Vice President Joe Biden will include U.S. ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro and U.S. Rep. Eliot Engel, the White House announced Sunday.
