Hundreds have been attending the funeral in Illinois of Sandra Bland, who died in a Texas prison cell nearly two weeks ago after being arrested
An official post-mortem found that Bland, 28, committed suicide by hanging herself. But her family rejected this and ordered a separate post-mortem.
Bland was found dead on 13 July, three days after she was taken into custody.
She was arrested after a confrontation with the officer who had stopped her for not signalling when changing lanes.
State officials and the FBI are investigating her death.
