Memorial For Mandela Planned At National Cathedral

WASHINGTON (AP) — A memorial for former South African leader Nelson Mandela is being planned at the Washington National Cathedral.

The memorial will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. Mandela died Thursday at the age of 95.

The National Cathedral has frequently served as a gathering place for mourners. It hosted funeral services for former U.S. Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford. In 2012, it was the location for a memorial for astronaut Neil Armstrong.
