INDIANAPOLIS -

Gov. Mike Pence has ordered flags at Indiana state facilities to be flown at half-staff in tribute of 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.

The governor had already directed flags to be lowered on Saturday in remembrance of the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
