Thousands of people, including prominent Russian and foreign politicians and activists, have pay their last respects to Boris Nemtsov - an opposition leader, who was assassinated in Moscow last week.

People stood in a kilometer-long queue to get to the memorial service, which took place in the Sakharov Center in Moscow. Not all were able to get inside.

From there Nemtsov’s coffin was taken to the Troekurovskoye cemetery, where about 600 people attended the funeral, Interfax estimates.
