US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle will travel to South Africa next week to pay their respects to the late Nelson Mandela together with former first couple George W. and Laura Bush.

Ex-president Bill Clinton, who was in office when Mandela took power to become South Africa's first black president, also said that he would be making the trip with his family.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the Obamas would "participate in memorial events" for the iconic leader who died Thursday at age 95.
