The body of justice Antonin Scalia was transferred Friday to the US Supreme Court, where President Barack Obama and hundreds of officials paid tribute to the conservative icon as he lies in repose. Scalia's flag-draped casket was installed at 9:30 am (1430 GMT) in the Supreme Court's Great Hall, after court police ceremoniously carried it up the building's iconic steps. Obama was among the thousands of people who are expected to pay their respect to the 79-year-old justice, who died of an apparent heart attack.
