Mourners place flowers in front of a statue of Nelson Mandela outside the South African embassy in Washington DC this evening. During the latter years of the apartheid regime an almost continuous stream of demonstrators was arrested on this spot, pressing for an end to apartheid and freedom for Mandela.
