Thousands mourn Sammy Ofer at Tel Aviv funeral

Thousands of mourners attended the funeral of Israeli shipping magnate Sammy Ofer, who was laid to rest at the Trumpeldor Cemetary in Tel Aviv on Sunday.
Ofer died Friday at the age of 89 following a difficult illness.  He had been the subject of scandal in recent weeks after the US accused his company of trading with Iran.
The funeral of Israel’s richest man, with a net worth of $10.3 billion, was attended by former prime minister Ehud Olmert and real estate tycoon Alfred Akirov, Army Radio reported.
