SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Center has scheduled a public memorial to honor the life of Nelson Mandela.

A candlelight vigil will be held at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the International Fountain.

The anti-apartheid leader died Thursday at the age of 95.

Mandela became South Africa's first black president in 1994 after spending 27 years in prison.
