Kenya lays Olympic marathon champion Sammy Wanjiru to rest

Thousands of people have attended the funeral in Kenya of the Olympic marathon champion, Sammy Wanjiru, who died last month after falling from a balcony.

The service was held at his hometown in the Rift Valley. A court ruled earlier this week that Wanjiru could be buried despite the ongoing investigation into his death.
