Johannesburg - The death of former president Nelson Mandela made international headlines on Friday morning.
Newspapers and television stations around the world published pictures of Mandela on their websites, accompanied by large, bold headlines.
The New York Times headline read: “Peaceful Liberator of a Torn South Africa”.
Reporter Bill Keller wrote that Mandela's quest for freedom in South Africa’s apartheid system took him from the court of tribal royalty, to the liberation underground, to prison, and to the presidency.
CNN's website read: “Nelson Mandela dies”, and was accompanied by a picture of him, and several other stories about Mandela's life.
