Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu mourned the loss of Rabbi Yaakov Yosef, the son of Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, calling him "a great teacher and adjudicator of Jewish law who followed in the path of his father."

Tens of thousands of people took part in Yosef's funeral procession in Jerusalem on Friday.

He died at the age of 66 after a long battle with cancer.
