BBC News - Churches hold prayers for ailing Nelson Mandela


Churches across South Africa are holding prayers for Nelson Mandela, who has been in hospital for four days being treated for pneumonia.
Several hundred people gathered at the Regina Mundi church in Soweto - once a focal point of the struggle against apartheid.
On Saturday, South Africa's presidency said Mr Mandela, 94, was breathing without difficulty.
It said excess fluid had been drained from the lungs to ease his breathing.
There are no details yet on how long he will remain in hospital and no statement on his condition has been given for the past 24 hours.
After Mr Mandela was admitted to hospital late on Wednesday, President Jacob Zuma said people "must not panic".
The former president first contracted tuberculosis in the 1980s while detained on windswept Robben Island.
