The death Thursday of South Africa’s liberation leader and first democratic president Nelson Mandela triggered an unprecedented worldwide chorus of awed respect.
Statesmen, resistance leaders, Nobel laureates and prisoners of conscience have died before, but never had one man united such global unity in honoring his passing.
Foreshadowing the guest list of what will surely be the most important funeral of recent decades, world leaders queued up to issue solemn tributes to the 95-year-old anti-apartheid leader.
“He no longer belongs to us; he belongs to the ages,” US President Barack Obama said, in a deliberate echo of an early tribute paid to Abraham Lincoln, the American leader who emancipated the slaves.
Over and over, leaders returned to the dignity Mandela displayed during his long imprisonment by South Africa’s former racist regime and then later, when he led his country to majority rule.
“We will not likely see the likes of Nelson Mandela again,” said Obama, America’s first black president, citing Mandela’s release from prison as one of his own early political inspirations.
Speaking on behalf of the United Nations, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon declared Mandela a “giant for justice.”
“Many around the world were influenced by his selfless struggle for human dignity, equality and freedom.
The discovery of some two million stolen online passwords this week prompted fresh warnings from security researchers to strengthen protection from hackers.
US-based security firm Trustwave said it located the stolen credentials on a server in the Netherlands, affecting accounts from Facebook, Google, Yahoo and other major firms.

An alliance of corporations and conservative activists is mobilizing to penalize homeowners who install their own solar panels—casting them as "freeriders"—in a sweeping new offensive against renewable energy, the Guardian has learned.
Over the coming year, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) will promote legislation with goals ranging from penalizing individual homeowners and weakening state clean-energy regulations, to blocking the Environmental Protection Agency, which is Barack Obama's main channel for climate action.
Details of ALEC's strategy to block clean-energy development at every stage—from the individual rooftop to the White House—are revealed as the group gathers for its policy summit in Washington this week.
About 800 state legislators and business leaders are due to attend the three-day event, which begins on Wednesday with appearances by Wisconsin Sen.
The dwindling summer ice of the Arctic, which global warming deniers until recently claimed wasn't melting more extensively than in the past, could be a good thing for Maine, according to Republican Gov. Paul LePage, who spoke at a transportation conference Thursday:
“Everybody looks at the negative effects of global warming, but with the ice melting, the Northern Passage has opened up,” he said.
