The White House says President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will attend a Tuesday memorial service in South Africa honoring Nelson Mandela.

The service will take place at a stadium in Johannesburg.

The Obamas will be accompanied on Air Force One by former President George W. Bush and wife Laura Bush. Former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, along with former President Jimmy Carter, will also attend memorials for Mandela in South Africa.

A state funeral for Mandela will take place Dec. 15 in the anti-apartheid leader's hometown.

Mandela died Thursday. He was 95.
