Steve Biko - Samora and Ntsiki Biko - A nation weeps. Mourners gather to pay their last respects as Steve Biko's body lies in state in his home before the funeral, attended by 20,000 mourners at King William's Town. Moment of poignance. Life must go on. Little Samora clings to his bottle in the arms of his mother. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA)
