Hundreds of South African demonstrators clashed with police outside of the Soweto campus of the University of Johannesburg before a planned appearance by President Obama. Between 150 to 200 demonstrators held signs that depicted the President as Hitler, and demanded that the United States lift trade sanctions against Cuba. Scuffles broke out between the demonstrators and police as they stood across the road from the university. Paying tribute to his personal hero, President Barack Obama met privately Saturday with Nelson Mandela's family as the world anxiously awaited news on the condition of the ailing 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader. Reports circulated that Instagram's video feature has already deep-sixed Vine. Those reports are muddy at best, and new data suggest the situation is a whole lot more complicated, all while questioning the credibility of the report published by the marketing site which started the rumours in the first place.
