WASHINGTON (AP) - After a long day of tributes, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's remains have arrived at Arlington National Cemetery where he will be buried alongside his slain brothers, John and Robert.

Kennedy's gravesite is flanked by two maple trees on a hillside with a view of the Washington Monument.

Thousands of people saluted Kennedy at his funeral in Boston and in a brief ceremony later in Washington at the Capitol. People lined Memorial Bridge to watch his motorcade move slowly across the Potomac River toward the cemetery in Virginia.
