Israël neemt afscheid van Sharon

Duizenden Israëliers hebben zondag de laatste eer betoond aan hun vroegere premier Ariel Sharon die zaterdag overleed. Zij konden langs zijn kist lopen die, gehuld in de wit-blauwe Israëlische vlag met davidster, op het plein van de Knesset in Jeruzalem was gezet. Maandag is de staatsbegrafenis van Sharon in de Knesset waarna hij wordt overgebracht naar zijn ranch in het zuiden van Israël. Daar wordt hij tijdens een kleine militaire ceremonie begraven naast zijn vrouw.

Celebrated as a military hero by some, recognised as a pragmatic politician by others and despised as a bloodthirsty criminal by his foes, Sharon was a polarising figure at home and abroad.
