US Secretary of State John Kerry joined other world leaders on Friday in commemorating former president of South Africa and freedom fighter Nelson Mandela who died in Johannesburg late Thursday at the age of 95.

"Nelson Mandela was a stranger to hate. He rejected recrimination in favor of reconciliation and knew the future demands we move beyond the past. He gave everything he had to heal his country and lead it back into the community of nations," Kerry stated in a statement released by the US State Department.
