(WSYR-TV/ABC News) -- The office of South Africa's president says Nelson Mandela has been released from the hospital and is recovering at home.

The former president and anti-apartheid leader remains in critical, and at times unstable, condition. But his doctors believe he can still receive the same quality of care while at home.

Mandela had been in the hospital since early June with a lung infection. He turned 95 in July and is considered one of the great political figures of the 20th century.
