The body of three-time heavyweight champion and outspoken
civil rights activist, Muhammad Ali, has arrived in his hometown of
Louisville – where he’ll be laid to rest. An airplane carrying his
casket, which was wrapped in a black cloth bearing Arabic scripture in
gold on it, arrived from Arizona, ahead of a public funeral procession
and service expected to draw huge crowds.
The Ali’ Family spokesman Bob Gunnell says his body was
accompanied by his wife, Lonnie, and other family members and friends.
Once the body was offloaded, Police escorted the casket from the airport
to the funeral home.
