    South Africa's first black president and anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela has died, South Africa's president says.

    Mr Mandela, 95, led South Africa's transition from white-minority rule in the 1990s, after 27 years in prison.

    He had been receiving intense home-based medical care for a lung infection after three months in hospital.

    In a statement on South African national TV, Mr Zuma said Mr Mandela had "departed" and was at peace.

    "Our nation has lost its greatest son," Mr Zuma said.

    He said Mr Mandela would receive a full state funeral, and flags would be flown at half-mast.

    BBC correspondents say Mr Mandela's body will be moved to a mortuary in Pretoria, and the funeral is likely to take place next Saturday.

    The Nobel Peace Prize laureate was one of the world's most revered statesmen after preaching reconciliation despite being imprisoned for 27 years.

    He had rarely been seen in public since officially retiring in 2004.

    "What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human. We saw in him what we seek in ourselves," Mr Zuma said.

    "Fellow South Africans, Nelson Mandela brought us together and it is together that we will bid him farewell."

    US President Barack Obama said Mr Mandela achieved more than could be expected of any man.

    He hailed him as "a man who took history in his hands and bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice".

    The greatest father there ever was: this is how South Africans will remember the man who brought an end to apartheid and delivered the nation from the brink of civil war.

    Social networking sites are abuzz with messages of condolences and messages of gratitude to the late statesman. He had been in and out of hospital in recent years and had become increasingly frail but many South Africans had continued to express their unreadiness to lose him.

    As he did in life, his passing has brought unity amongst South Africans as black and white speak of their love for him. Many here will be drawing on that same spirit for strength, that "Madiba magic" over the next few days and weeks as the nation left with the great burden of honouring Mr Madela's legacy, mourns his passing but also celebrates his life.

    UK Prime Minister David Cameron paid tribute to Mr Mandela, saying "a great light has gone out in the world".

    Since he was released from hospital, the South African presidency repeatedly described Mr Mandela's condition as critical but stable.

    Born in 1918, Nelson Mandela joined the African National Congress (ANC) in 1943, as a law student.

    He and other ANC leaders campaigned against apartheid (white-only rule).

    He was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1964, but was released in 1990 as South Africa began to move away from strict racial segregation.

    He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and was elected South Africa's first black president in 1994. He stepped down after five years in office.

    After leaving office, he became South Africa's highest-profile ambassador, campaigning against HIV/Aids and helping to secure his country's right to host the 2010 football World Cup.

    He signed off on the deaths of innocent people, lots of them Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. At his trial, he had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilising terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandela's MK terrorists. Here are some highlights...

    -Church Street West, Pretoria, on the 20 May 1983
    -Amanzimtoti Shopping complex KZN, 23 December 1985
    -Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court, 17 March 1988
    -Durban Pick ‘n Pay shopping complex, 1 September 1986
    -Pretoria Sterland movie complex 16 April 1988
    - limpet mine killed ANC terrorist M O Maponya instead
    -Johannesburg Magistrate's Court, 20 May 1987
    -Roodepoort Standard Bank 3 June, 1988

    Tellingly, not only did Mandela refuse to renounce violence, Amnesty refused to take his case stating "[the] movement recorded that it could not give the name of ‘Prisoner of Conscience' to anyone associated with violence, even though as in ‘conventional warfare' a degree of restraint may be exercised."
