Mandela dominates front pages of newspapers

  • The world has come together to mourn the death of Nelson Mandela and most newspapers have used their front pages as tributes to him. 

    The New York Times described him as being a "fighter, prisoner, president, and symbol." 

    "Mr. Mandela was that rarity among revolutionaries and moral dissidents: a capable statesman, comfortable with compromise and impatient with the doctrinaire," Bill Keller for the NYT wrote. 

    The Chicago Tribune called him "a leader of mythic stature"  and the Financial Times said Mandela was "indeed the father of the nation."

    However, his own wise words are probably the best way to remember him: "When people are determined they can overcome anything."
