World Pays Respect & Mourns Nelson Mandela Online (1918-2013)

The world is in mourning tonight as Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa and revered human rights icon, died at his home in East Cape, Qunu. He had been suffering from serious health complications for some time. He passed with his family at his bedside.

South African President Zuma said in a televised address to the country, “Our nation has lost its greatest son; his humility, his compassion and his humanity earned him our love.”

Nelson Mandela spent 27 years imprisoned for his opposition to white rule in South Africa. He was released when he was 72 years old and went on to become South Africa's first black president, serving only one term from 1994 to 1999. He would then go on to be one of the most important and influential figures of our time and one of it's most prominent ambassadors.

His death has been met worldwide with an outpouring of condolences from nations' leaders and public figures.

U.S. President Barack Obama called him "influential, courageous and profoundly good," while British Prime Minister, David Cameron stated, "A great light has gone out."

DJs, musicians and celebrities also reacted on Twitter:
