World Watch: Madiba in mourning

* South Africa: We’ll have more detailed coverage tomorrow of the first day’s action in the 2010 World Cup. Despite the great celebrations throughout South Africa, Nelson Mandela mourned in private the tragic death of his great-granddaughter.

* Myanmar: The government denied allegations from defectors claiming that the state is developing a nuclear arms program.

* U.S.: Exactly how large is the BP oil spill? It depends on which expert you ask.

* Kyrgyzstan: At least 46 people were killed as a result of “ethnic riots” occurring in the southern part of the country.
