lGhanaian soldiers carry the flag draped coffin of celebrated poet, professor, and ambassador Kofi Awoonor after his body was flown back from Kenya, at the airport in Accra, Ghana, Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2013. Mourners sang funeral dirges and traditional leaders poured libations Wednesday for the beloved literary icon, as hundreds gathered at the airport where his body was brought home days after he was slain in the Kenya mall terror attack. Awoonor had been in Kenya with his son to take part in a literary festival, when he was among the more than 60 civilians killed at the Nairobi mall. (AP Photo/Christian Thompson) less
