British Prime Minister David Cameron on Thursday said "a great light had gone out" following Nelson Mandela's death, revealing that flags would be flown at half-mast at his Downing Street Office.
"A great light has gone out in the world," Cameron wrote on his official Twitter account.
"Nelson Mandela was a hero of our time. I've asked for the flag at No.10 to be flown at half mast."
