World Watches As Nelson Mandela Remains Hospitalized

Originally published on Thu June 27, 2013 3:44 pm

Nelson Mandela, the former South African president revered around the world, remains in a Pretoria hospital. His condition has improved slightly — though still critical, he is now "stable." His family is near, some of them angered by the army of reporters who have gathered near the hospital. President Obama, on a three country tour of Africa, arrives in South Africa on Friday.
