Rabbi Ovadia Yosef buried in Sanhedria cemetery

Rabbi Ovadia Yosef has been interred alongside his wife, Margalit, after a several-hour journey from the Porat Yosef yeshiva in Geula, where the funeral procession began this afternoon.

Police say that the funeral, the largest in Israeli history, attracted more than 800,000 people, some of whom are now starting to return to their homes. However, many thousands are still lingering around the cemetery.
