Nimoy’s funeral held in LA

Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy has been buried in Los Angeles in a small, private funeral.

Nimoy, 83, died on Friday of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which is often caused by smoking. It is Jewish tradition for the dead to be buried within 24 hours but, as the practice is forbidden on a Saturday, the actor was laid to rest on Sunday.
