Personalities from politics and society have honored late U.S. Senator John McCain in Washington. Former US presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush also took part in funeral ceremonies.

Obama said at funeral, McCain understood "that some principles go beyond politics, that some values go beyond parties".
