                                Funeral employees cover a casket, decorated with a Chapecoense soccer team logo, containing the remains of a team member at San Vicente funeral home in Medellin, Colombia, Friday, 2 December 2016.
The bodies of 71 people killed in a plane crash in Colombia that devastated a Brazilian football team are being returned home, as the team’s home town prepares for a memorial service.

Brazilian President Michel Temer is due to greet the planes at the airport.

But he is not expected to go to the ceremony at the stadium, reportedly amid concerns about protests taking place. Fifa’s Gianni Infantino will be attending the service.

As the bodies were taken to the airport in Medellin on Friday, hundreds of people lined the road to pay their final respects.

The remains of the Paraguayan crew member Gustavo Encina were handed over to his family in Paraguay.
