Belgium Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo and his foreign affairs minister Didier Reynders walked through the crowd at the FNB Stadium on Tuesday shaking hands and posing for photos.

People flocked to pose with the two foreign dignitaries who were in South Africa to attend the memorial for former president Nelson Mandela.

The two left their VIP suite to interact with the locals. The crowd was very excited to see many of the foreign heads of state and waved and shouted to try and get their attention. - Sapa
