      Obama Praises Mandela in Johannesburg

      Belfast Telegraph reports President Barack Obama exhorted the world to embrace Nelson Mandela's universal message of peace and justice, electrifying the rain-lashed spectators in the Johanesburg football stadium .

      In a speech that received thunderous applause and a standing ovation from scores of heads of state, says Belfast Telegraph, Mr Obama urged people to apply the lessons of Mr Mandela, who emerged from 27 years in prison under a racist regime, embraced his enemies when he finally walked to freedom and promoted forgiveness and reconciliation in South Africa.
