Mandela laid to eternal rest

Qunu, South Africa (PANA) - The body of former South African President Nelson Mandela has been laid to rest in his hilly small village of Qunu, capping a long goodbye to a man hugely venerated by his compatriots and the entire world for ending apartheid and uniting his fractious nation.

''Yours was truly a long walk to freedom, and now you have achieved the ultimatum freedom in the bosom of your Lord Almighty,'' the presiding Cleric said shortly before the casket bearing his remains was lowered into the grave.
