Hundreds gathered Wednesday afternoon for the funeral of Shira Roth, the 21-year-old Ma'aleh Adumim resident who died in Peru last week after falling ill while mountain climbing.

Roth's body arrived in Israel Wednesday morning,  after efforts by the Foreign Ministry and the Israel Consulate in Lima. Roth had been traveling with friends in South America for four months as part of a post-army trip.
