LOS ANGELES (Agence France-Presse) — Ronald Reagan’s casket will be displayed to the public at his presidential library in Simi Valley, Calif., as well as the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, his office announced yesterday.

“The president will lie in state at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, and then he will go to Washington, where there will be an official lying in state,” a spokeswoman in his Los Angeles office said.

After being laid out for 48 hours at his library in California, Mr. Reagan will lie in state in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol, and a funeral service will be held at the National Cathedral.

Mr. Reagan’s body will be returned later to California for burial at the presidential library, the spokeswoman said.
