Crowds at funeral for German leprosy doctor known as Mother Theresa of Pakistan
Mourners have attended a state funeral for a German doctor and nun who earned international acclaim as "Pakistan's Mother Theresa" by devoting her life to the eradication of leprosy.
Ruth Pfau died on August 10 aged 87 in the southern port city of Karachi.
State-run television broadcast live footage of her casket being carried by a military guard at the city's St Patrick's Cathedral.
Hundreds of people attended the service, including members of civil society and diplomats.
She was later buried in a nearby cemetery, after a funeral attended by President Mamnoon Hussain, army chief General Qamar Javed, senior government officials and Muslim clerics.
Martha Fernando, who worked with Ms Pfau at her Marie Adelaide Leprosy Centre, said her death was a great loss to humanity.
"There is no one like her and there won't be any replacement to her. We pray to God to send people like her again to this world so that they could continue serving people," she said.
Pakistan suffered high rates of leprosy up until the mid-1990s.
Ms Pfau played a key role in efforts to bring the disease under control.
