Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze’evi was buried in a state funeral Thursday at the Mount Herzl military cemetery in Jerusalem, one day after he was assassinated by members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Earlier, hundreds of Israelis filed past Ze’evi’s flag-draped coffin, which had been placed on a black carpet in front of the Knesset.
