Sen. Inouye to lie in state at the Capitol

Sen. Daniel K. Inouye (D-Hawaii) will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda on Thursday, House and Senate leaders announced Tuesday. Inouye, 88, a decorated World War II veteran and the second-longest serving senator in history, died Monday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda.

Inouye's casket will arrive at the Capitol at 10 a.m. Thursday for public viewing from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., aides said. A funeral will be held Friday at 10:30 a.m. at the National Cathedral in Washington, and a memorial service is planned for Sunday at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Hawaii.
