Mandela back home

After nearly three months in hospital, South African anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela is discharged. A medical convoy arrived at his Johannesburg home Sunday, though it was not immediately clear if the former president was inside. The 95-year-old has repeatedly been hospitalized, most recently for a recurring lung infection from his time in jail under apartheid. A government statement warned he is still in critical condition and at times unstable. But some took his release as a sign his condition was improving. (SOUNDBITE) (English) SOUTH AFRICAN WOMAN SAYING: "It's everyone's prayer in South Africa that he has to recover, and after such a long time that he's been in the hospital, it's great news and a relief that he's going home." His home in the upscale Houghton neighbourhood has been outfitted for special care, the presidency said, requesting privacy for the family.
