Tunsia's assassinated opposition leader Chokri Belaid was buried on Friday at around 1500 GMT at a cemetery in southern Tunis, an AFP journalist reported.

As Belaid's body was lowered into the ground, thousands of people cried "Allahu akbar!" (God is greatest) before singing the national anthem and reciting the opening verse of the Koran.
