A man pushes through a guide rope to prostrate himself in grief on the steps in front of the coffin of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi at the prime minister's official residence, the national palace, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Aug. 25. In an emotional outpouring of national grief, Ethiopians continued to line up by the thousands Saturday to pay their respects to Zenawi, who died Aug. 20, of an unknown illness. Zenawi is scheduled to be buried on Sept. 2.
