Nelson Mandela released from hospital

Nelson Mandela has been discharged from the Pretoria hospital where he had been receiving treatment since June, the South African president's office said Sunday.

He will continue his recovery at home.

"Madiba's condition remains critical and is at times unstable," the president's office said. "Nevertheless, his team of doctors are convinced that he will receive the same level of intensive care at his Houghton home that he received in Pretoria."
