The funeral service of former US President George HR Bush was held at the National Cathedral in US on Wednesday. It was a rare gathering of five former presidents including Trump, Obama, Bush and Jimmy Carter and Clinton.

Other dignitaries present in the cathedral included Britain’s Prince Charles; German Chancellor Angela Merkel; former Polish President Lech Walesa; former Vice-Presidents Dan Quayle, Dick Cheney, Al Gore and Joe Biden; and former Secretaries of State James Baker, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice.

George Bush, the 41st president and last president from the second world war era, died last week at home in Texas. He was 94 at the time of his demise. He was the longest-lived president in US history.

Wednesday was declared a national day of mourning - many government offices and US stock exchanges are closed. Following the funeral service, Mr Bush's flag-draped casket was carried from the cathedral by a military honour guard and was later flown to Texas.
