Mandela: The fondest farewell the world has ever seen

U.S. President Barack Obama led world tributes to Nelson Mandela on Tuesday, hailing him as 'a giant of history' at a rain-soaked memorial attended by tens of thousands of South Africans united in proud, noisy celebration. "He was not a bust made of marble, he was a man of flesh and blood," Obama said of Mandela. "It is hard to eulogize any man... how much harder to do so for a giant of history, who moved a nation towards justice."
