PM’s “selfie” with Obama and Cameron goes viral

December 11th, 2013 11:01 am| by admin

PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt has been accused of lacking sensitivity after she was caught snapping a 'selfie' with  British PM David Cameron and US president Barack Obama at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service yesterday.

The three leaders were among dozens who joined tens of thousands of South Africans in Johannesburg to celebrate the life of their former leader who helped transition the country away from the apartheid regime.

It is unclear how Thorning-Schmidt managed to nab a seat beside the leader of the free world, but press photos clearly show the two enjoying a laugh while Obama’s wife Michelle looked on unimpressed.
