Ghanaians file past Kofi Annan’s body


Ghanaians have been filing past Kofi Annan’s remains to pay their last respects, as his body lies in state at the International Conference Centre in the capital, Accra.

The Ghanaian diplomat, who became UN Secretary General, died on 18 August in Switzerland where he lived. His body was flown to Ghana on Monday evening ahead of Thursday’s official funeral.

The viewing started at 10:00 GMT and will end at 16:00 GMT. It will open again on Wednesday.
