Former South African President Nelson Mandela was admitted to the hospital Saturday for testing. The 94-year-old anti-apartheid icon was "comfortable and in good care" as of Sunday, said a spokesman, but no specific details were given about the kind of tests Mandela is undergoing. Mandela, who spent 27 years in prison for fighting racist white rule, became South Africa's first black president in 1994 and served one five-year term.
