A state funeral service with full national honours  was held in Karachi for Dr Ruth Pfau, an image of magnanimity and devotion  who passed away at 87 years old earlier this Week.

Pfau was a German-Pakistani doctor who dedicated her life to helping leprosy patients in Pakistan and is one of the founders of Marie Adelaide Leprosy Centre (MALC).
Armed forces personnel carried the casket containing Dr Pfau's body into St Patrick's Cathedral in Karachi's Saddar area on Saturday. The coffin was draped in the Pakistani flag and covered with rose petals.
