Riot Police Disperse Anti-Obama Protesters Outside University of Johannesburg’s Soweto Campus

Armed police fired stun grenades to disperse the crowd over several hundred protesters.

Separately, President Obama met privately with members of Nelson Mandela’s family. He said, ‘I expressed my hope that Madiba draws peace and comfort from the time that he is spending with loved ones.’
