PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA - DECEMBER 12:  People cross a junction after watching the funeral cortege of former South African president Nelson Mandela pass along Madiba St towards Union Buildings where the anti-apartheid hero will lay in state for the second of three days on December 12, 2013 in Pretoria, South Africa. Over 60 heads of state have travelled to South Africa to attend a week of events commemorating the life of former South African President Nelson Mandela. Mr Mandela passed away on the evening of December 5, 2013 at his home in Houghton at the age of 95.
