Subject: Travel Pool Report #6 - Burial

POTUS and the other leaders walked to the grave site, not far from the stage.
Pool had limited access, could only see POTUS from far away (and from behind).
POTUS sat down under a large tent offering shade to the guests and could be seen (but not heard) discussing with President Rivlin to his right and PM Netanyahu to his left.
The coffin was lowered, the audience stood to listen to the prayers.
POTUS sat watching ten wreaths being placed next to the grave.
Pool was ushered out as POTUS shook hands and exchanged a few words with Shimon Peres' family.
At 12:45 pm, motorcade is rolling.
