Hundreds of South Africans pushed through police lines in a last-ditch bid to see Nelson Mandela lying in state in the capital Pretoria.

They were hoping to be the last of some 50,000 people to pass through the Union Buildings, where the former president's body has lain.

Officials say at least 100,000 people have visited the venue over the past three days to pay their respects.

Mandela's coffin was taken from the building shortly after doors closed.
