The former Texas governor, John Connally, has been buried despite calls from researchers that bullet fragments be removed from his body to determine whether more than one gunman took part in the assassination of John F Kennedy in 1963. Connally's family and friends were not interested in the request and the government made no attempt to halt his burial on Thursday. Mr Connally was wounded during the assassination of Kennedy.
