      Obama on Mandela: I'll Do What I Can to Learn from Him


      United States President Barack Obama issued a statement on Thursday following the death of former South African president Nelson Mandela.

      “We have lost one of the most influential, courageous, and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this Earth. He no longer belongs to us -- he belongs to the ages,” said Obama, adding, “I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that Nelson Mandela set, and so long as I live I will do what I can to learn from him.”
