Crowd swells at funeral as thousands cross police barricades

Palestinians cross over police barricades, swelling the crowd’s ranks at the funeral to at least 10,000.

Police do not attempt to stop them as they form a human tide from Jaffa Gate to the cemetery at Mount Zion.

Some are seen tearing down Israeli flags by Jaffa Gate as they march past.
