TOPSHOTS-SAFRICA-POLITICS-MANDELA

Mourners gather to honour late South African former president Nelson Mandela at an inter-faith service on December 6, 2013, held at the Grand Parade in Cape Town, where Mandela made his first speech as a free man in 1990. Mandela, the revered icon of the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa and one of the towering political figures of the 20th century, died in Johannesburg on December 5 at age 95. Mandela, who was elected South Africa’s first black president after spending nearly three decades in prison, had been receiving treatment for a lung infection at his Johannesburg home since September, after three months in hospital in a critical state.
