13 December 2013 Last updated at 17:04 GMT

The three-day period in which the body of Nelson Mandela lay in state has now come to an end.

South African officials say around 100,000 mourners have viewed the body at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

Some had to be turned away because queues were too long.

Nelson Mandela's body is being returned to a military hospital in Pretoria.

It will then be flown to his ancestral home in the village of Qunu in the Eastern Cape for his funeral on Sunday.
