The funeral of a nurse who apparently killed herself following a hoax call by two Australian DJs to the private hospital where she worked has taken place in her Indian hometown.

Jacintha Saldanha, 46, was buried at a church in Shirva, just outside Mangalore on the south-west Indian coast.

Her family accompanied the cortege and were joined by hundreds of mourners.
