Thousands of South Africans lined the streets of Pretoria to pay their respects as the body of Nelson Mandela was taken to lie in state.

 

The coffin was draped in the multi-coloured South African flag as it arrived at the grand setting of the Union Buildings, seat of power in the country's capital and the place where the former leader was sworn in as president.

 

Nelson Mandela Body Moved To Lie In State

Members of the public formed a guard of honour as his coffin passed by fronted by a fleet of police outriders, at the start of what will be three days of mourning in the executive capital.

 

As the procession passed, mourners sang tributes to the former South African leade, who died last week at the age of 95.

Members of Mr Mandela's family and VIPs will pay their respects before the public are allowed in to view the body inside a glass-topped coffin.

 

The same procession will take place each morning until Friday, with the coffin being returned to the military hospital each evening.

With worries about crowds, three sites have been set up in Pretoria from where mourners will be shuttled in to the Union Buildings and back.

 

People have been told their mobile phones will have to be switched off and be out out of sight before they will be allowed to file past the body. No photos will be allowed.

 

The lying in state will end with Mr Mandela's remains being transported to the Eastern Cape and his ancestral home of Qunu at the weekend ahead of his funeral on Sunday.

 

A military guard of honour will greet the coffin, which will be draped in the national flag.
