Yosef’s casket arrives at Sanhedria cemetery

The funeral procession for Rabbi Ovadia Yosef has arrived at the Sanhedria cemetery, after an hours-long journey in what police say is the largest funeral in Israeli history.

A huge crowd is still surrounding the van used to transport Yosef’s body, making removing the casket a difficult task, according to footage broadcast on Channel 2.

It took about 3 hours to make the journey from Porat Yosef yeshiva to the cemetery, normally a 5-8 minute drive.
