Nelson Mandela’s recovery progresses

JOHANNESBURG — South African antiapartheid leader Nelson Mandela has recovered from his recent lung infection and a surgical procedure to remove gallstones, according to an announcement Sunday by President Jacob Zuma.

Doctors say that Mandela, 94, has made ‘‘steady progress and that clinically, he continues to improve,’’ the statement said. Mandela was hospitalized for nearly three weeks before going home on Dec. 26.
