ATLANTA (AP) — Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter will attend a memorial service for the late South African leader Nelson Mandela.

Carter spokeswoman Deanna Congileo said that Carter will attend a memorial service Tuesday at FNB Stadium on the edge of Johannesburg's Soweto township.

Carter will travel as part of a delegation of "The Elders," a group of former world leaders founded by Mandela in 2007 to work for peace and human rights.

A spokesman for The Elders, Sylvain Biville, said it is likely that the group's chair, former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan, and several members will also attend.
