A child runs past a large portrait of former president Nelson Mandela in a Soweto park Sunday, Dec. 16, 2012. Mandela underwent a successful surgery to remove gallstones Saturday, the nation's presidency said, as the 94-year-old anti-apartheid icon is still recovering from a lung infection. Doctors treating Mandela waited to perform the endoscopic surgery as they wanted to first attend to his lung ailment, presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj said in a statement. Mandela has been hospitalized since Dec. 8. (AP Photo/Denis Farrell)
