S.Africa's Mandela frail in first TV footage in months

Anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela made his first television appearance in almost a year on Monday, looking thin and frail in his Johannesburg home where he has been resting after a bout of pneumonia.
The veteran leader stared mostly straight ahead, his face showing little expression in the footage of a visit from President Jacob Zuma and other officials, shown by state broadcaster SABC.
The 94-year-old was in good health and good spirits, the ruling African National Congress said after the Monday visit, in the first update on his condition since he was discharged from hospital in early April.
