Obama, Raul Castro Shake Hands At Memorial For Nelson Mandela


President Barack Obama shakes hands with Cuban President Raul Castro during former South African President Nelson Mandela's national memorial service in Johannesburg.

"It says this is a moment of reconciliation for Mandela and President Obama is doing the diplomatic thing. He's not just going to walk by and ignore these people who are there," CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour said during her network's coverage of the memorial.

"This is a man, and it is so true, who brought together people in life and he continues to bring people together in death," she added.
