Congress lifts travel restrictions on Nelson Mandela.

Yesterday, the House and the Senate worked out final legislation that “will remove from U.S. databases any notation characterizing the ANC and its leaders — including Nobel Laureate and former South African President Nelson Mandela — as terrorists.” Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has voiced support lifting the restrictions — even though the State Department has repeatedly opposed the bill — and it now heads to President Bush for his signature.

Update:

Today, Nelson Mandela is celebrating his “90th birthday with a giant concert in London” in support of his global AIDS campaign.
