As 95 candles glowed in the background to mark each year of his life, thousands of mourners gathered at Nelson Mandela's state funeral in his childhood village of Qunu. About 4,500 people gathered, including President Jacob Zuma, who sat between Mandela's widow, Graca Machel, and his ex-wife, Winnie Mandela.
