Nelson Mandela is spending his 95th birthday in hospital in Pretoria, as events take place around the world and in South Africa in his honour.

The former president and anti-apartheid leader has been critically ill with a recurring lung infection since 8 June.

South Africans have been urged to mark Mr Mandela's 67 years of public service with 67 minutes of charitable acts.
