Tongan king's body brought home for funeral

 

Members of the Tongan royal family in traditional dress watch as pallbearers carry the casket of King George Tupou V from an aircraft at Fua'amotu airport yesterday.

Thousands of sombre Tongans, swathed in black, lined the Pacific island nation's roads to welcome home the body of their late king – an eccentric reformer who died in Hong Kong last week.
