Top Swedish politicians have expressed sadness and paid their last respects to South Africa's former president, Nelson Mandela, who died Thursday in Johannesburg at the age of 95 after suffering from a lung infection and spending three months in hospital.
Sweden was the first country outside of Africa that Mandela visited after his release from the infamous Robben Island prison in 1990. He had served 27 years behind bars after being arrested for "sabotage".
Sweden's prime minister, Fredrik Reinfeldt of the conservative Moderate party, said: "Nelson Mandela was someone who changed the world. He was as strong in his belief in the equal dignity of all people as he was strong in his will and ability for reconciliation. He chose reconciliation where others would have chosen revenge."
In a statement to news agency TT, Reinfeldt added that Mandela "created a new South Africa and provided an example and an ideal to people across the world".
