PHOTOS: Nelson Mandela's Funeral

Nelson Mandela was laid to rest this morning following a short graveside sermon by Bishop Siwa, who said: "Yours was truly a long walk to freedom and now you have achieved the ultimate freedom in the bosom of your maker, God almighty."A marching platoon of the presidential guard, wearing green ceremonial uniforms and carrying rifles with fixed bayonets, escorted the coffin, which had been transferred to a gun carriage, to the burial site.At the end of the memorial ceremony a military guard of honour carried Mr Mandela's coffin, draped in the South African flag, out of the marquee as the audience sang.Nelson Mandela spent much of his childhood in the small, Eastern Cape village of Qunu - a place he chose to return to after his release from prison. The ceremony was held in a marquee constructed for the event.Inside the marquee, Nelson Mandela's portrait had been placed behind 95 candles, representing one for each year of the late president's life. It was a befitting burial
