Mandela Signer 'Moving His Hands ... but There Was no Meaning'
ALAN CLENDENNING and RAY FAURE ap.org As one world leader after another paid homage to Nelson Mandela at a memorial service, the man standing at arm's length from them appeared to interpret their words in sign language. But advocates for the deaf say he was a faker. The incident, which outraged deaf people and sign-language interpreters watching the service broadcast around the globe, raised questions of how the unidentified man managed to crash a supposedly secure event attended by scores of heads of state, including President Barack Obama.

Police also failed to search the first wave of crowds who rushed into the stadium after the gates were opened just after dawn.
