Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who helped end apartheid in South Africa and who was awarded the Nobel Peace in 1984, has died aged 90.

A contemporary of anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela, he was one of the driving forces behind the movement to end the policy of racial segregation and discrimination enforced by the white minority government against the black majority in South Africa from 1948 until 1991.
