QUNU, South Africa - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton visited with Nelson Mandela at his home on Monday to pay her respects to the aging South African icon.
Clinton and a small group flew to Mandela's home village of Qunu, where they reminisced and had a small private lunch.
Photographers and a reporter were allowed to see a few moments of the hour-long meeting in Mandela's comfortable house.
Mandela rarely appears in public now, and even meetings at home with anyone outside his family are growing rare.
Clinton and Mandela's wife, Graca Machel, talked as photographers snapped pictures and Mandela, 94, looked on smiling from his wingback chair.
