South Africa’s first black president Nelson Mandela passed away at his home today. He was 95. Tributes and condolences flooded social networking websites as world leaders, former presidents, celebrities and citizens of the world remembered the anti-apartheid civil rights leader.
President Obama spoke on Mandela’s passing from the White House about 45 minutes after the announcement that Mandela had died.
“He no longer belongs to us. He belongs to the ages,” said Obama, borrowing the words of Edwin M. Stanton, who, as Abraham Lincoln lay on his deathbed, said “He now belongs to the ages.”
The production team behind the Fast & Furious movie franchise released a moving tribute to actor Paul Walker, 40, who was incinerated along with a friend in a single car accident in California last weekend.

According to the coroner’s report, Walker initially survived the violent impact, but he died “within seconds” after the crash.
