South African President Jacob Zuma has confirmed that 95-year old Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela died today, December 5th, at around 8:50 PM. Zuma says that Mandela passed on peacefully in the company of his family.

"Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father," he added. Mandela's lung problems have been linked to tuberculosis - a disease that he contracted during his 27 years in prison.
