Anti- apartheid hero Nelson Mandela dies at 95

New Delhi, Dec 06 (ANI): South African anti-apartheid hero and its first elected black president Nelson Mandela died at the age of 95 at his Johannesburg home.

Mandela, who emerged from prison after 27 years to lead South Africa out of decades of apartheid, had faced several health scares. Dec 6, 2013
