Back To Front Page

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Gov. Mike Pence has ordered flags at Indiana state facilities to be flown at half-staff in tribute to Nelson Mandela and is asking businesses and residents to do so also to honor the world leader.

The former South African president and the anti-apartheid icon died Thursday at the age of 95. Pence’s order follows an order by President Barack Obama that the U.S. flag be flown at half-staff at the White House, federal buildings, military bases and embassies until sunset Monday.

Pence is asking those in Indiana to do the same.
