Israeli soldiers from a paratroopers unit once commanded by former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon rehearse to serve as honour guard at his funeral on Monday, near Sycamore Farm, Sharon's residence in southern Israel, January 12, 2014. Sharon, the trailblazing warrior-statesman who stunned Arab foes with his dramatic turnarounds, died on Saturday aged 85, after eight years in a coma caused by a stroke.
