There will be 95,000 mourners inside an open air stadium. Among them will be one current and three former presidents of the United States and leaders from across the globe. The funeral of Nelson Mandela will be one of the most watched events in recent memory, and one that presents significant security challenges.

+ I highly recommend the 30 for 30 documentary called The 16th Man which chronicles the South African rugby team’s 1995 World Cup win. The story was also made into a feature film called Invictus.
