Lyra McKee's Funeral
According to CNN, the funeral of murdered journalist Lyra McKee on Wednesday drew leaders from across British and Irish politics, in a church service aimed at uniting divisions.
British Prime Minister Theresa May, UK opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Irish Taoiseach (or prime minister) Leo Varadkar attended the service at St.
Anne's Cathedral in Belfast.
Anne's is a Protestant church that welcomes Catholic clergy, chosen by McKee's Catholic family in a show of unity for a country shaken by religious violence.
McKee, 29, was shot by the New IRA while reporting on rioting in the Northern Irish city of Derry/Londonderry on Thursday.
