CBS Full Coverage of Nelson Mandela's Funeral

QUNU, South Africa (AP) -- South African military honor guards are marching and guests are arriving ahead of the state funeral for Nelson Mandela.

The anti-apartheid leader will be buried Sunday at a family grave site in his hometown of Qunu in Eastern Cape province.

The burial will end 10 days of mourning ceremonies that included a massive stadium memorial in Johannesburg and three days during which Mandela's body lay in state in the capital, Pretoria. He died Dec. 5 at the age of 95 in his Johannesburg home.

In preparation for the funeral, servicemen from the army, navy and air force have marched on a dirt road in Mandela's family compound. Nearly 5,000 guests are expected to be there, and a smaller group will attend the burial.
