Report: Obama Avoided Shaking Mugabe's Hand

President Barack Obama did not, apparently, shake the hand of Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe at Tuesday’s memorial for Nelson Mandela. 

NBC News reported that Obama had shaken hands with Mugabe “on his way to the rostrum.” However, the UK Telegraph reported that President Obama “was asked to take his seat just before reaching Mugabe.” 

It was at that point that he shook the hand of Cuban leader Raúl Castro.

The video footage of the event does not appear to show Obama greeting Mugabe.
