Praying for Mandela

 In 2013, South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and former President Nelson Mandela lay in a Pretoria hospital bed suffering from a prolonged respiratory infection. Wellwishers from across South Africa and abroad came to pay their respects, creating a wall of flowers and get well cards outside the hospital.
A timelapse video of this story is available in the Multimedia section.
