The state burial of Tanzania’s former President John Magufuli is underway in his north-western home village of Chato.
Mr Magufuli died last Wednesday after a mysterious absence of almost three weeks.
The Tanzanian authorities say Mr Magufuli – one of Africa’s most prominent coronavirus sceptics – died from heart failure.
His state funeral was held in the capital, Dodoma, on Tuesday.
Here are some of the images from the burial ceremony:
