Hundreds of Thousands Attend Hariri's Funeral in Beirut


An estimated 200,000 mourners jammed central Beirut Wednesday to pay last respects to slain former prime minister Rafik Hariri.

Hariri was laid to rest at a Beirut mosque two days after a car bomb attack that killed him and at least 14 others.

Thousands of mourners chanted anti-Syrian slogans as the funeral procession traveled from Hariri's home to a mosque the late billionaire helped to build.

Lebanese opposition politicians continue to blame Mr. Hariri's assassination on Syria, the main power broker in Lebanon.

Hariri's family warned members of Lebanon's pro-Syrian government to stay away from the funeral ceremonies.

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State William Burns, who attended the funeral, has called for the "complete and immediate withdrawal" of Syria's 14,000 troops from Lebanon.
