Locals in Mandela's home watch funeral on TV

Mourners from Mandela's village Qunu were among millions of South Africans watching the ceremony on television.

    Millions of South Africans watched the state funeral from afar. Among them were Qunu villagers, who regarded Nelson Mandela as family.

    Some are questioning why they weren't invited to the service.
