Michelle Obama and her two daughters to meet with Nelson Mandela

The U.S. first lady Michelle Obama and her two daughters on Tuesday met with Nelson Mandela during a private visit in which the icon in the struggle against apartheid looked healthy. A photo released by the Nelson Mandela Foundation showed the former South African president, 92 years old and largely retired from public life, sitting on a couch next to Mrs. Obama in his house.

A niece and a nephew who accompany Michelle Obama were also invited to the meeting with Mandela. The family of U.S. President spent 20 minutes with Mandela and his wife, Graca Machel, who is a former first lady of Mozambique.
