QUNU, South Africa (Reuters) - The body of Nelson Mandela was laid to rest on Sunday in a grave near his family homestead at Qunu in South Africa's Eastern Cape province.

The burial attended by family members and South African leaders followed a state funeral service and closed 10 days of emotion-charged mourning for the former president and anti-apartheid legend, who died on December 5 at the age of 95.
