Hundreds of thousands of Pakistanis crowded an emotional funeral Friday for assassinated former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.
Throngs of people lined the streets as the coffin holding Ms. Bhutto's body was taken to her final resting place and lowered into a grave next to her father at the family mausoleum in southern Sindh province.
Angry Bhutto supporters continued street protests Friday - attacking police stations and government offices, and torching cars. At least 23 people have died since Ms. Bhutto was killed on Thursday.
