Vaclav Havel funeral: World leaders pay respects

The state funeral of former Czech President Vaclav Havel is taking place in the capital, Prague, attended by leaders from around the world.

Sirens sounded across the city to herald the start of the ceremony.

A bell then tolled at St Vitus Cathedral, as mourners in the building and those filling the square outside observed a moment of silence.
