Immediately following his return from Cyprus on Friday, President Shimon Peres joined the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin at the monument erected on the site of Rabin's assassination.

Peres, who had been at a huge peace rally in Tel Aviv with Rabin on the fateful night of November 4, 1995, laid a wreath at the monument, as did Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai.

"Sixteen years ago today, the blood of one of the greats of the Jewish nation was spilled," said President Shimon Peres at Rabin's memorial ceremony Friday.

"Today, November fourth, is the 16th anniversary of the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin," said Peres.  "For us it seems like it happened yesterday," he added.

A memorial rally planned to take place on Saturday was postponed due to the weather.
