Israelis remember Ariel Sharon ahead of funeral
Thousands of Israelis have filed past the body of ex-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who died on Saturday aged 85 - after eight years in a coma.
Draped in a flag, his coffin lay in state outside the parliament building in Jerusalem.
A state funeral will take place on Monday before a military burial ceremony at his ranch near Sderot.
