South Africans gather to remember Mandela

Many who were unable to attend the former president's memorial watched the service on television at home.

    In homes and restaurants, away from the rain that had fallen all day long, South Africans gathered to watch Nelson Mandela's memorial on television.

    They danced, they sang, they ate, they drank; they celebrated and remembered the iconic former president, whose death inspired a plethora of tributes from world leaders.
