Filipinos flash the L sign with their fingers for 'Laban' (fight), the slogan of late former Philippine president Corazon Aquino, and hold up a magazine showing her portrait during her funeral procession in Manila on August 5. Over 100,000 people took to the rain-soaked streets of Manila on Wednesday to bid farewell to former president Corazon Aquino, whose 'People Power' democracy movement ended decades of dictatorship.
