The remains of Sarawak Chief Minister Adenan Satem were taken to the Samariang Muslim Cemetery from the Sarawak Jamek Mosque in Petra Jaya this afternoon.
Officers and men of the military and police carried the casket to the hearse at 1.25pm for the two-kilometre journey to the cemetery.
Many people lined the route to the cemetery to pay their last respects.
The Sultan of Brunei Darussalam Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, Sarawak Yang Dipertua Negeri Abdul Taib Mahmud and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak were among the thousands of people who attended the funeral prayers following the Zohor prayers at the mosque.
Adenan died at the Sarawak Heart Centre in Kota Samarahan in Kuching from complications of heart disease at 1.24pm yesterday, 16 days short of his 73rd birthday.
