Jordanians grieve the loss of King Hussein outside the King Hussein Medical Center. The king died from cancer in February at the age of 63. He had been monarch for nearly 47 years and was a strong advocate of peace in the Middle East. Mourners streamed to the palace to pay their respects. Thousands lined the route of the funeral procession, and representatives of countries that traditionally were enemies stood alongside each other at the ceremony.
