Mom Breaks Down, Mosque Filled To The Brim For 28Yrs Old Yassar Yaqub's Burial, Despite Being A ‘Drug Dealer’
Mohammed Yassar Yaqub, 28, was laid to rest four days after he was fatally shot by police officers who were investigating a report of a person with a gun.
The crowd was so large that many mourners couldn't fit inside the mosque in Lockwood and were forced to wait outside during prayers on Friday morning.
After prayers Yaqub's body was buried at Hey Lane Cemetery near Castle Hill.
An inquest into his death was opened and adjourned in a three-minute hearing at Bradford Coroner's Court on Friday morning.
