A large black van has emerged from the Porat Yosef yeshiva compound, carrying the body of Ovadia Yosef. The vehicle is completely surrounded by the crowd, who keep trying to get close to the body despite Border Police attempts to keep them away, television images show.

The van is only able to advance very slowly and carefully.
