The late Ari Nesher, who was run over last week while riding an electric bicycle in Tel Aviv, was laid to rest on Sunday afternoon.

Hundreds of family members, friends and acquaintances attended the funeral at the cemetery in Moshav Udim in central Israel.

Before arrival at the cemetery, MDA motorbikes held a ceremonial ride in honor of Ari, who volunteered in the organization.

Nesher's organs were donated by his family after his death was determined, and went to save the lives of five patients.

At the same time, the arrest of soccer player Yitzhak Aspeh, who was suspected of running over and abandoning the late Ari Nesher, was extended with agreement this morning until Tuesday.

At a hearing in the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court, it became clear that Aspeh had begun to cooperate with his interrogators, following several days after his arrest in which he insisted on preserving the right to remain silent.
