Mandela Discharged From Hospital

Nelson Mandela has spent his first night at home after being discharged from hospital where he was being treated for pneumonia.

In a statement, South Africa's government said there had been "a sustained and gradual improvement".

The 94-year-old was admitted on 27 March for a recurring infection of the lungs and had fluid drained from them.

Mr Mandela was the country's first black president in the 1990s and is seen by many as father of the nation.

He led the struggle against apartheid (white minority rule) and in 1993 was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
