Thousands of South Africans have attended the funeral of one of the leading figures of the anti-apartheid movement, Albertina Sisulu.

Mrs Sisulu was active in the woman's league of the African National Congress and was married to Walter Sisulu, who brought Nelson Mandela into the ANC.

She died last week at the age of 92.

Speaking at the funeral, President Jacob Zuma paid tribute Mrs Sisulu, saying "few nations are blessed with a mother of the nation of the calibre of Mama Sisulu".
