Mandela 'steadily improving' on 95th birthday - Jul 18th, 2013 - International

— The health of former South African President Nelson Mandela is said to be getting better as he celebrates his 95th birthday today.

The office of President Jacob Zuma says Mandela is still in a hospital in Pretoria but his health "is steadily improving."

Mandela has been in critical condition with a recurring lung infection. Court documents filed by the family earlier this month had said Mandela was on life support.
