FM: Mandela will be remembered 'for generations'

Carwyn Jones has paid tribute to Nelson Mandela and says that the former South African leader will be remembered "for generations to come" and that he faced his struggle "with dignity".

For all that we did, we didn't have to confront apartheid on a daily basis. We didn't have to run the risk of imprisonment or worse. Nelson Mandela faced his struggle with dignity and without bitterness and that is why he will be remembered for generations to come.

– First Minister Carwyn Jones
