HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut’s governor has directed flags to fly at half-staff in recognition of both the death of Nelson Mandela and the lives lost in the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.

Flags are flying at half-staff through Monday in Mandela’s honor.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says that flags will also remain at half-staff on Saturday, Dec. 7, in recognition of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

Malloy said Friday that the day is an opportunity to honor the actions of those who gave their lives at Pearl Harbor and the battles that followed during World War II.
