Former U.S. Vice President Walter Mondale passes away

Former U.S. Vice President Walter Mondale died on Monday at age 93, his family said.

Mondale, the first major U.S. party presidential nominee to pick a woman running mate, believed in an activist government and worked for civil rights, school integration, consumer protection and farm and labor interests as a U.S. senator and vice president during Carter's troubled one-term presidency from 1977 to 1981, Reuters reported.

He also served as U.S. ambassador to Japan from 1993 to 1996 under Bill Clinton.
