Image of Asia: Paying respects to Phillip Hughes

In this photo by Rob Griffith, pall bearers carry the coffin of Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes to the hearse during his funeral in Macksville, Australia, on Wednesday. Australia captain Michael Clarke and the rest of the test squad were joined by former and current players from around the world, and friends and relatives from Hughes' hometown of 2,500 people on the northern coast of New South Wales state. Hughes, 25, died Nov. 27, two days after he was hit in the head during a domestic cricket match.
