Jackson family belatedly leaves for funeral

A funeral procession including about 20 cars from the Jackson family compound is belatedly en route to the service for Michael Jackson at a Glendale cemetery.

The family motorcade departed from Encino more than a half-hour after the 7 pm yesterday (0200 GMT Friday) service at Forest Lawn Glendale was scheduled to begin. The journey is about 20 minutes, even with a police escort.

The likely hourlong delay meant that celebrities - including 77-year-old Elizabeth Taylor - were kept waiting on a muggy night at which temperatures hovered at 90 degrees (32 Celsius) just before sunset.
