A Great Leader Dies
Nelson Mandela, the first black president of South Africa who died on Thursday, once spoke in the Irish parliament. He arrived in Ireland in July 1990 not long after he had been released from Robben Island where he had served 27 years a political prisoner of the white minority Apartheid regime.
Mr Mandela died at 95 years of age. His health had been frail for some time.
