Acclaimed author Chinua Achebe was buried in his native Nigeria on Thursday (23May13) after his body was returned to Africa two months on from his death in America.
The writer, often hailed as 'the father of African literature', died at a hospital in his adopted home of Boston, Massachusetts on 22 March (13) following a short illness.
His body was returned to Nigeria from the U.S. on Wednesday (22May13), and thousands of mourners turned out the following day (23May13) to pay tribute to the Things Fall Apart author, including Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan.
Achebe had lived in America since 1990 and worked at the country's prestigious Brown University as professor of Africana studies until his death.
