AP WAS THERE: Mandela's release from prison

EDITOR'S NOTE — On Feb. 11, 1990, AP reporter Greg Myre was in Cape Town when Nelson Mandela was released from prison after 27 years. Mandela walked out of Victor Verster prison hand-in-hand with his then wife, Winnie, as people worldwide rejoiced.

Twenty-three years after its original publication, the AP is making this story available to its subscribers.
