Pictures From King Abdullah's Funeral

King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, 90, died last night after battle with pneumonia. Thousands gathered in Mecca today to mourn just hours after King's death. The late King's funeral was held in a grand mosque in Riyadh. His body was wrapped in a plain cloth as it was carried into the funeral. He was later buried in an unmarked grave in keeping with Muslim tradition. Half-brother Salman, 79, inherited the throne and lead prayers to Abdullah
