Mandela grandson accuses 'vengeful' relatives

Nelson Mandela's grandson Mandla has accused his relatives of being vengeful and seeking to control the former South African president's legacy.

His comments came as the bodies of three of Mr Mandela's children were being reburied at the anti-apartheid icon's home village of Qunu.

On Wednesday police exhumed the bodies from Mandla's homestead, after court action by his relatives.

Mr Mandela, 94, remains "critical but stable" in hospital, a new update says.

Gabriel Gatehouse reports.
