A legendary South African photographer who chronicled the brutalities of apartheid and the rise of Nelson Mandela died in a Johannesburg hospital on Sunday night.
The African National Congress called Alfred Khumalo a "rare and significant talent that was pivotal in raising social consciousness and exposing the brutality of the apartheid administration.
"South Africa has lost a self-taught giant in the media field who still bore the scars of torture and mental scars of continuous detentions by the apartheid security forces.
"The ANC bows its head in honour of a singularly brave and daring South African who bequeathed our country and future generations historic moments in his camera."
Mr Khumalo covered the Rivonia trial, in which Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment, and was present again in 1994 when the anti-apartheid icon was sworn in as South Africa's first black president.
Foreign Minister Alistair Burt's admission that the Cameron government has "supported" a survey of attitudes to US drone strikes in Pakistan's tribal areas amounts to a tacit admission of British involvement.
